A lot of times, I regret not taking enough pictures. Even though I have tons of albums in Multiply and Facebook, I still feel that I haven’t captured enough moments. At the same time, I feel bad each time I try to pause a moment just to take a picture.
I guess that’s why I love television. And photo galleries. And photojournalists. And portraits. And paintings. They manage to recreate that fleeting second between an argument and a breathless kiss. Photojournalists capture human emotion with such accuracy and delicate precision, and the emotion never gets lost, in pictures or in translation.
I’d give a lot to have that ability. I’d give a whole lot to learn that skill. There are so many beautiful things that fly by our noses and they are all beautifully disarming and we never frame it. We take a mental picture and as time passes, we forget it. It would be nice to have a reminder hanging on your wall.
Ross and Rachel’s first kiss is worth playing over and over.
