Photographs. They can capture all kinds of happy memories, including all kinds of emotions, but they can be the photographs that are permanently attached in our minds, but most importantly, in our hearts. Each photograph tells a story, and also has a memory or emotion behind it that somehow can still make you have goosebumps, for instance, when you’re older and you look back on a photograph you took about 5-10 years ago, that photograph becomes a part of you and never leaves you, even when you feel it may have done.
To spread and encourage positivity in this topic, I will talk about whether each photograph captures a memory or emotion, and I’ll be making sure to give my views on why I believe that a photograph does capture either one of them or both.
Does Each Photograph You Take Capture a Memory?
To me, each photograph that I take captures a memory, and a happy memory too. Why? Because each photograph I take tells a story, and is also a memory because I can remember the day I took it, whether there has been good or bad weather, I see each photograph as a happy memory, as each photograph I take feels like a happy achievement at that stage or point in my life.
Each photograph I take, whether it is a photograph of something that is landscape-based, or even if it is a photo I’ve taken with my friends, I see those photographs as happy memories, as they count as memories that will not only live with me forever, but will also be the footprints that have been left on my heart.
Also, every photograph that I take, it doesn’t matter what kind of photograph it is, is a permanent memory that will stay with me for the rest of my life, as I can look back and know how many happy moments I have had along the way.
Does Each Photograph You Take Capture an Emotion?
Each photograph I take captures a different kind of emotion, but the kind of emotion that I can connect with. For example, if I took a photo with a close friend of mine who went to my school or college, and those years passed, looking back would make me miss that close friend of mine, as that photo has a connection behind it, which makes me feel a bit teary, but happy at the same time, because I know I have got that photo to prove the happiness I would share with a close friend of mine, even with all of my friends as well.
Each photograph carries its own emotion, especially where the photos I’ve taken or the photos that I’ve asked my friends, or even anyone else to take for me that I couldn’t take properly are concerned, as each photo, whether I’ve taken it or not, carries a bundled connection of emotions, including any happy emotions that I can reminisce in at any time in my life, no matter whether I’m younger or older than them. To me, each and every photo memory makes me smile, as I can prove that I’ve been through a lot of happy times with everyone, and had a lot of happy experiences along the way too.
For every photo I take, or for every photo I ask someone to take for me, every photo, to me, is an everlasting and happy memory that will last a lifetime, as a photograph is like an album, you take the photo or get someone to take that photo for you, and then you add it to the photo album, so that as you get older, those photos can be handed down to the younger generations, so that they can see how much of a good life you had, and that it can influence them to have a happy life as well.
In conclusion, I feel that a photograph, whether you are the one that took it, or whether you asked someone else to take that photo for you, captures both memories and emotions. I also believe that if a photograph can carry both memories and emotions, then those photos are worth keeping, as they will be something you can reminisce and look back on as you grow older. To me, every photograph is a happy memory, and a happy memory that’s full of mixed happy emotions is the key to a wonderful life.

A quote from me to put a spring of happiness in your step :-).
“PROMOTE HAPPINESS. PROMOTE JOY. BUT MOST OF ALL, PROMOTE LOVE AND HAPPY MEMORIES, AND VALUE THEM FOR YOUR LIFETIME, BECAUSE THOSE HAPPY MEMORIES ONLY OCCUR ONCE, SO REMINISCE THEM NOW AND MAKE THEM SOMETHING THAT’S GOOD, SOMETHING THAT IS WORTH LOOKING BACK ON, AND YOU’LL FIND THAT THOSE HAPPY MEMORIES AND EMOTIONS YOU HAVE WILL ALWAYS BE WORTH IT.
ENJOY LIFE NOW, REMINISCE THOSE MOMENTS, BUT MOST OF ALL, EMBRACE THEM, AS THOSE MOMENTS ARE THE KEY TO A WONDERFUL LIFE.” – ALEX SMITHSON
