The book of our lives

A moment in time.
After reading the question “Can a camera truly capture a moment in time?, I took a moment to go through some of the photos I’ve taken in different places and times.
Looking at all those landscapes, dear friends, and places that have become dear to me, I started to realize that all these collections of photos that we take throughout the yearw become at some point the book of our lives, like a living memoir that keeps on growing as time passes by.
As we add more and more images to these pages, this book full of stories written with no words, keeps experiences and moments frozen in time, guarding them, and sheltering among all those fun or sad chapters in our lives that have impacted us in such a way that have made us feel like capturing those precise moments in a photograph to remember them by, as only books (or a travel machines) can do it.
