SO you've got your photographs done. But do you actually put them up on the wall? Do you have them displayed to enjoy every day?
Living in digital era has stripped down the power of printed photograph. I am guilty of that myself, even afraid to think of how many important photographs are still sitting on my many disks.
But for the few of them I have framed up on the wall... while so many of our memories fade away, these are strengthened by the pieces on the wall. And my children love them. They comment of them, laugh at them, talk about them. They remind them where they came from, highlight their sense of belonging and connection to their identity.
They remind them how important they are. How loved they are.
There's a poetry in a quality wall art. They're an investment that gains value with time and so much more than a USB in your drawer, they're a family heirloom.
They help us treasure memories of our lives. They help us remember.
