A Photograph is a Biography of a Moment

by jessicaturner on March 27, 2014

So many of us here love to take photos. This story of a man who documented his wife’s story through their 60+ year marriage is simply beautiful. A must-watch today.

Have the tissues nearby.

I love what he says, “A photograph is a biography of a moment.” So true.

AdelineBirthHis words reminded of so many of the photos I have put in my Project Life albums over the years. I have been working on Adeline’s first year album for Project Life Tuesday next week (I hope you plan to link-up!) and the moments captured truly are biographical. I’m so grateful for every photo we’ve taken.

I hope this inspires you to take some photos today. Remember, your photos don’t have to be fancy. You don’t need a fancy camera. Your phone will do. The point is to capture and document. This is why I love Instagram. Follow me on Instagram to see many every day photos from my crazy, yet ordinary life.

What will you photograph today?

What a wonderful story. A beautiful picture of love through pictures. How do you spell his name? I was writing down the quote, “A photograph is a biography of a moment” but I wanted to put his name under it for future reference. Thanks.

I watched that video last week and that same quote really stuck out to me.

Now you’ve gone and done it :-). This is inspiring to me to photograph my wife. She has Lupus, and she is quite a trooper. Thank you for this.
