Life is Like Photography

“Life is like photography, you develop from the negatives.”
Thick or thin. Good times or bad. Up or down. That’s life. Either you dwell on it or turn it around. All we want is to be happy and feel loved. I know it is cliche to say that things happen because there is some purpose behind it. But there really is. And people come and go for a reason. We have our own flaws and we make mistakes too. So i guess we either learn and grow from them or dwell on it and let it eat us alive. Indeed i’d like to capture memories through photography. I feel this glorious feeling whenever someone tells me that i can tell a story through it and appreciates each of my photos. As i click the shutter, i have frozen a moment in time by recording the visible light reflected from the objects in the camera’s field of view. The chemical record is very stable and can be subsequently developed, amplified and modified to produce a representation of that moment.
We all want beautiful images that’s why we should live in the moment and take a snapshot of life, whether it depicts a candid laugh or a magnificent place. Every photo tells a story. Maybe those negatives refer to my shortcomings and failures. I will learn and develop from them. I will become better each and everyday. I will develop from my faults. In time i would be able to grow beautifully inside and out. Just like a picture.
