A Photographic Diary: Carly

-



Why do you take photos?


I take photos to document my life.
To remember.
I love the archival art of photography.
Photos can stand the test of time and retell a story again and again.


Photos can be humorous or photos can be sad. But they always have a story to tell from the past.



Recently in my basement we found tons of old photos from when my gramma and grampa, uncles and mama were young. I am a sucker for old photos especially when they are so dear to my heart.

My fave is Carly's Tumblr: The Year I Turned 21.
I'm amazed to see every day how resourceful this young lady is.

  1. great photos-I take pics for the same reasons although as I get older, if I haven't written down what/where/when-I forget. I hate when I do that.
