Why don’t you stop for a moment and take a picture?

Scanning through old pictures often bring out a little nostalgia in me. I’d like to think that you would share this warm and fuzzy feeling with me as well.

Whether it’s browsing through a worn out photo-book, captured memories on your photo roll, or a screenshot from the past posted on Facebook or instagram, they all bring me back to that same moment in time to what have been.

The good and the bad.

The happy and the sad.

The triumphs as well as the defeats.

They could all blend into one perfectly captured moment immortalised in one photo.

People of different walks of life may have varied opinions. Some may not be a fan of taking a million photos, in every angle possible. While others live on the hype of capturing every detail of their life on film.

We all have a right to our own opinion.

I, being part of the earlier demographics, began to realise the importance of taking photos.

Pictures could serve as a window to a past that may have been forgotten.

It may be a memory filled with laughter or it could be one filled with tears. But irregardless of what emotion it once brought us, it was still a moment we all considered worth capturing.

So take a breather from your usual schedule.

Wake up a bit earlier to see the sun rise.

Go to a new cafe with a great view.

Hang out with an old friend that you’ve missed.

And most importantly… don’t forget to take a picture.

Years from now, you’d look back on this memory with a big smile on your face.

Here was my inspiration in writing this blog.

An old photo I took about 5 years back.

It reminded me of youth and my carefree attitude. It is something I definitely yearn to go back to and live once more.

So here is my challenge to you.

1. Browse through your old photos.

2. Remember all the memories you once had in that very photo.

3. Please do share that nostalgic story/ memory on the comment box down below.

What is that memory you want to go back to?

    1. That you for taking some time to comment. I really loved your take on that.

      Call me old fashioned but nothing beats printing out photos and making a scrapbook. The look of slightly worn out photos give it a totally different feel.

      If it’s okay to ask.. what fond memory came coming back once you scanned through old pictures?

      I’ll definitely check that blog post out 😊

  1. As I told you in phoebe’s MD meet and greet my photos are my most precious possessions and I often find myself going through them. Thing is, now that You’ve made me stop and think about it these past few years I haven’t really taken many photos. not unless I’ve been travelling. in which case it could be argued I take too many! I will start trying to take some more photos at home this year. Particularly as this is the last year I’ll be calling Spain “home”.

    1. I’m really glad to have connected with you. I feel it in your writing and in your words. And from the beginning it has always been my dream to connect with others through my writing.

      I am really jealous with what you do as well. Travelling and making foreign places your new home. How long have you been staying is Spain? Is it as beautiful as I hear it is?

      I’m ecstatic that I made you stop and think. We take the simple things in life for granted. An example of which is taking good photographs in which we can look back a few years from now and reminisce.

      Again thank you so much for dropping by and taking the time to read my blog. 😊

      1. Spain, when I came the plan was 6 months maybe a year. That was 3 years ago! This is my last year though, I’m planing a “sabatical” starting next July. A year long trip across Asia. A year where I plan to keep track of my adventures in this blog and of course take many Photographs!

      2. Ohhh Asia seems very nice and exciting. I’m Asian so I’m probably a bit biased. Haha

        I do hope you’ll check out the Philippines. The people here are very warm and the scenery is quite beautiful if I do say so myself 😊
        Enjoy your trip 😊

      3. Oh I love Asia, and I’m not asian so I can’t be biased! The Phillipines is definitely on the list. Not only am I really sad I didn’t get to visit it when I was living in Asia but throughout the years I’ve met and become friends with so many people from there that there’s no way i will miss it this time.

      4. I’m glad that it’s definitely on the list. I recommend Baler aurora, el Nido Palawan or siargao island. They have the most amazing beaches here. 😊
        I can’t wait to see your new and exciting blogs about your trip 😊
