Digging through some old photographs for Reuben’s family history project, I came across these treasures from the past. Photographs from almost 70 years ago when I wasn’t even born. It makes me realize how valuable photographs are… they connect us to an era that would have otherwise been unknown or forgotten. How precious is that?!
Almost 20 years ago, we lost a large part of our family photo albums in floods that hit our city. When the waters receded, we managed to salvage some of them, and painstakingly cleaned, dried and saved a few. Of all the things destroyed in the floods, it is the photos we lost that we miss the most even today.
Brings home the point all over again, that you can never put a value on moments captured in time and you can only capture them with a camera.
