Le temps passe si vite | Time goes by so quickly
As my youngest son races through his infancy, I catch myself in a rabid rush to capture moments with a fervor that wistfully recalls the speed at which my older son has grown, knowing that waiting for later sometimes means missing the chance completely. It's like observing a palpable thing called Time and watching it materialize then quickly disappear. Over and over again...
So the mundane and minutia of everyday become just as important as the milestones and monumental events of every year. Each moment begs the question, "will I experience this again?", which invites a sweeping sadness and in turn compels me to keep shooting.
Experience teaches that memories can dim and morph over time, but pictures remain and seldom lie... they allow us to summon what we felt at a single moment and fill in where Time had disappeared.
