So often we are the central subject of our photographic memories when we travel or set out for new experiences. Pictures of us in front of landmarks and scenery; on the beach or in the pool, group photos at the dining table. Oh – and all those selfies.
I believe those photos really miss the opportunity to capture the inspiration we felt that very moment we experienced the miracle or miracles we were encountering. For example, a picture of a couple taken in front of a setting sun can be timeless, for sure. But what that couple experienced individually, and together, when they set their sights on the blazing beauty of God’s handiwork, is almost completely lost.
Photographer, Tom Robinson took on a very interesting project where he began to document his family’s travels by taking pictures from their “vantage point” and only showing their feet which personalizes the photo. I find the results quite amazing and can see how looking at these photos 10 years from now can bring them right back to those special moments.
