“This is what I like about photographs.
They're proof that once, even if just for a heartbeat,
everything was perfect.”
by Skip Cohen
It's Throwback Thursday, and once again, I chose not to dig back very far. I ran across this collage in a folder of PowerPoint slides. At the end of most presentations/workshops, I always comment about the best thing about this industry: The friendships that come out of everyone's love for the craft. This would typically be my last slide.
Looking at each of these photographs, I realized what I miss most: the freedom of being able to hug a friend.
I've shared Jody Picoult's quote so many times in other posts, but no other statement fits better at this time in history. It's our photographs and videos that capture those ordinary moments from the past that now have become iconic!
But while life is different for all of us today, nothing can change the love and respect I have for everyone above. And, as sappy as it sounds, it's the journey we're all still on together that makes each day unique, even when there's so much we used to take for granted!
Social distancing? We didn't need no stinkin' social distancing!*
Happy Throwback Thursday!
