Looking at PHOTOS you've TAKEN

    I've been combing through the 1,000's of pictures I've taken over the years for a photo book, and many bring up such melancholy emotions. Old relationships, family members gone, old places I've lived, etc. I wonder if others feel the same way.

    How do you feel when you look at old pictures on your PC?

    Fat!

    And old! (I actually go through old pictures NOT on a PC!)

    Seriously...I just suggested on a hoarder thread that you take pictures of things you're emotionally invested in so that even when they're gone you still have the memories.

    Isn't that the point of taking pictures? I can't imagine anyone on these boards NOT feeling the way you do!

    wrestlervic, you failed to notice the part where I wrote SERIOUSLY. As in I WAS KIDDING ABOUT THE FAT AND OLD PART, NOW LET'S MOVE ON TO THE SERIOUS PART.

    And might I add to the serious part: people don't take pictures of subjects that don't interest them, so of course if you take a picture it's of personal interest and you will have an emotional reaction to them upon rereview.

    And isn't accusing people of being egotistical somewhat...egotistical? If I were to say your question was dumb to begin with, wouldn't that be egotistical?

    However...some filmmakers detach themselves from their subject matter and despite yours, perhaps you do the same and that is why you were surprised by your reaction to old photos and felt compelled to post this thread.

    Ok, enough about that. More about me, please.

    I have about 200 pictures on my computer of friends and family. I like what I looked through. Mostly happy pictures.

    Good god, take your lithium. My response to your response was way mild to get a novel response from you.

    ... it makes me feel good to look at them. I feel they're ' ambient. '

    I love looking at pictures I've taken. Each one represents a great memory. I've actually had some of mine enlarged and they are on the walls in my living room.

    A lot of stuff is coming to my mind, some good some bad. Deleted a few that I still didn't like or the had people I don't like.
