A Camera Can Be Magical

A Picture Says It All

Today, turned into one of those unexpected really, good days. One of those “AH HA,” times where I thought to myself, “Why didn’t I think of this before?”  Taking photos is such a simple and easy thing to do for an event or just capturing an everyday moment.   It does not make any difference if you have an expensive camera, a disposable one, or a cell phone that takes pictures. It is all about the MOMENT!  Yes, being engaged in the moment before you is all that ever truly matters.

I was at the nursing home, where one resident after another amazed me.  They all loved having their photos taken.  It is one of those small things that matters.  Photography makes us feel valued as a person.  The person taking the photo is engaged with us.  They have to connect and be attentive in order to capture us, our essence, in that very second of the snap.  The quality of the photo does not matter; a good photo or not, makes absolutely no difference.  Someone thinks we are worth taking a picture of!   No matter who we are, or where we are at in life, it’s always nice to know we have value, even if we are a person with Alzheimer’s disease.
