The Subject Matter

We look at our own photographs,
taken over time, and smile at the
scenes, subjects, and the secrets.
Our memory is strengthen by the
subject matter of lives lived, but
now no longer there. A blessing.
We knew less about a photo when
it was taken than we do now.
A picture tells you only what you
want to know. Remember.
