Photographs are the images of memory and their emotional, and sometimes even their monetary, value increases with the passage of time.
Please see more pictures and read the remainder of this wonderful article here.
A gripping line by Mr. Riper is printed by the photograph above: “Photographs are the images of memory and their emotional ….value increases with time.” This line succinctly, but with passion, encompasses much of the appeal and value of photography. Grab your camera today and record an “image of memory!” Isn’t that the greatest phrase.
