A fleeting moment, captured forever…

A picture of me as an 8 month old baby, holding onto my mother’s knee and trying to stand, giving her a broad baby grin – that beautiful expression of wonder, captured on the face of a young new mother.

A picture of me and my sister as toddlers, grinning at the camera with a triumphant look. We had emptied an entire bottle of talc on the floor and mistakenly thought we were going to get away with it…

A picture of me and myΒ fiancΓ© taken on our first date as a college-going couple… I look at it and realise that I’d forgotten just how geeky we both were back then!

I’ve always loved taking pictures and being in them – treasured moments and special occasions deserve to be captured. Β Sometimes, we lose the person who shared that moment with us and looking at the picture brings back a tear and fond memories. Sometimes relationships change, and a photograph brings back a memory of what once-was.

And those incredibly treasured moments – the dewy-smiles of a newly-wed couple, the adoration on the face of a new grandfather, or the toothy grins of childhood friends with their arms around each other – these are moments that deserve to be cemented in stone.

In the rush of life, and in going about our routine, we often forget so many things… So pause for a moment, pick up an old photo album and flip through its pages… you’d be surprised at what memories it brings back!

P.S. I’ve been missing from the blogosphere for a while and it feels good to be back… January has been an incredibly special month. And in case, you missed the little announcement I slipped in, in the third line there – I got engaged! πŸ™‚ More on this later, perhaps… πŸ™‚ Leaving you with a picture πŸ™‚

 

Engaged!
