Photographs are an important visual medium in telling a story, a memory, a moment, a fleeting time of your life. With digital cameras becoming the best thing out there to record every snapshort of your life - significant or not, less and less photos are being printed on those glossy small bits of paper. And what a shame. No matter how vibrante the computer screen may be, nothing beats physically holding a memory.
Every so often, take some photos to process. You won't regret it.
