Dear Photograph

You may well have seen this website. If you haven’t let me warn you… every single time I go on it I cry. If anybody ever needs to argue a case about photography being important then Dear Photograph is the evidence to use. It’s a simple concept… take a photo from the past, hold it up in front of where it was taken and take another photo. Short stories accompany the photos that show just how precious they are…

Dear Photograph,
It takes a great architect to create something strong and everlasting, and when I look back at our first family road trip travelling to see the Golden Gate Bridge, I realize now that our mom is the greatest architect ever. She has always taught us the importance of family and sticking together no matter what. We built many memories that summer in the 70’s and all without iPods or cellphones, just us. That is golden and so is Mom… she is 75 now.
Love, Colleen

Dear Photograph,
30 years ago, I was that little boy who could see the beauty in all things far and wide. Perhaps that is the innocence of childhood…looking at life with clarity and simplicity, always enjoying the view. I hope I never lose sight of that.

Dear Photograph,
He saw the beauty in life and never took the simplest moments for granted. Just like this one. I’m forever honored to call him my Dad and cherish the love he quietly showered on all of us.
Miss you always,
Your Little Girl

Dear Photograph,
Thank you for everything we had.

So take as many pictures as you can. It doesn’t matter if your camera’s crap or they come out all blurry. Just click away. Because one day somebody’s going to want to look at those photos… and remember.
