AKEY MANUFACTURING ANNUAL PICNIC 2017 (MORE PHOTOS AS PROMISED!)

MEMORIES

I was going through some photos for a display board for my dad’s 80th birthday party the other day and I was so glad I took a lot of pictures over the years!  Yes, it was an emotional roller coaster ride.  But, it brought back so many happy memories!

Moments are fleeting, time passes quickly before your eyes.  One of the most important elements for a successful photo is that it makes you feel something. What is it about a moment that moves someone enough to capture it? A wave will never crash against the shore in the same way; my dad will only turn 80 once; and the sun might never look like that again. It’s important to document and preserve that moment so that it can live and move you forever. Beauty and art are everywhere.  Pictures help you to hang on to memories a little longer.

A PICTURE’S WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS

Images can transport you to a different time and place. Photos of anything (the changing leaves of the season; your vacation; your family and friends) all can bring back the emotion you felt when they were taken.  Some of the following photos are just remarkable!  Anyone who knows me, knows I cry when I see a Kleenex commercial!  So, when I saw the photos from the picnic, I was moved and grateful that these moments were captured.  Thanks again to Kate Brown of Charly’s Studios!
