Photo Quote of the Week

It's weird that photographers spend years or even a whole lifetime, trying to capture moments that added together, don't even amount to a couple of hours. ~James Lalropui Keivom

I very much enjoy this quote because it just makes me feel silly.
As photographers, we really do spend our careers capturing moments that even when added up
aren't much more than a few hours.
but i love that irony
(if it even is irony)
because it's not about what it adds up to
it's about what the moments mean.
to us as photographers.
as friends.
as family.
as people.
these moments can amount to lifetimes.

so the fact that we spend so much time capturing moments

that don't up to too much time in themselves

makes me laugh and only feel that much more proud of the moments
i do capture.

  1. Great quote, as you said it really makes you think. Even though the moments added together may not add up to much, they make up the difference in their meaning. Love it.
