The Curse of Old Photographs


For dwellers like me, we suffer from the things we choose not to forget. I remember what Celine said, from the movie Before Sunrise, that "memories are wonderful things, if you don't have to deal with the past." So then, while I smile at pictures I took of nights spent with glorious company, I ache a little for I've also captured things/people that are no longer here but which I cannot bring myself to erase. A photograph may seem to be just what your eyes can see, but behind the lens, those calculating eyes see differently.
