Pictures can be such an amazing thing because ten different people can look at the same picture and come away with ten different perspectives. To me, that is way pictures are so great. You can almost see yourself in that world of the picture. To see and feel what the subject of the pictures sees and feels, unless it’s a picture of a tree or something then you can pretend that you are just a being in another place or time. You are able to let your imagination run wild with pictures.
Or you can just have the best time taking pictures, or actually being the subject of pictures you can be anything. People take pictures for all sorts of reasons, just because or because you are at a special event. We have this luxury because the technology of cameras have come so far. Can you imagine being in the time where cameras first came about? I believe it was sometime in the 1800s, and you would have to sit still for a long time for the camera to take your picture. In today’s day and age that just would not fly. Good thing we have instant photos now where we can snap a picture, save to our computers, then just print them out. It’s a wonderful thing. Pictures capture the moments in our lives that we never want to forget. If we are hanging our with our friends having a good time or if we are at a party celebrating someone getting a year older. It doesn’t matter what we are doing, what matters is that we can preserve that memory forever.
I don’t know about you but I was around when we had Polaroid cameras were invented but those things were awesome. It was a quicker process, as soon as you took a picture it printed. Granted the quality is much better now but back then it was quicker, no getting around that. But after that it seems that we took a step in the wrong direction, where we had to get our photos developed at the local store. I guess it depends on how you look at it, the quality of pictures then were better but we still had to wait about a week to see them. Then they came out with one hour photo, where they could get it develop while you shopped. But even still now is better than anything in the past because we can do it all ourselves, we don’t need to take it any where but to our own computers. We are also able to add whatever special effects to our photos as well, we can make them black and white, sepia, vintage looking or we can have words printed on them. It is exciting to see how far we have come and even more exciting to wonder where we will be with cameras, photos and technology in the future, even just five years in the future.
