We love clicking pictures on our phone and revisiting them much later. There’s something about pictures which bring back a rush of memories.
Now, we have all our pictures stored on our phones and other devices, which can be accessed at any time and anywhere.
If you are a millennial (people born in the 1980s and 1990s), you will surely remember getting pictures clicked in the photo studio. The whole process of getting a picture clicked was a grand affair. Donning on the best of your clothes and accessories, you would be excited beyond words. And the eagerness with which you would wait for the pictures to get developed was worth all the wait.
Then came the most awaited part. Getting a new set of albums and filing all the pictures developed into them.
I do remember how my mother would neatly file all the pictures and write down quirky and funny captions below each of the pictures! Once all that was done, we would sit together and enjoy poring over the photos, laughing at the memory of any funny incident that happened when a particular picture was clicked. Sometimes even laugh at funny pictures of us.
The best part, however, is preserving all those albums and going over them many years later.
Every now and then, I love to get out the huge stack of albums out of the cupboard and relive all those good memories. Nostalgia would be on an all-time high. The huge grin on my face fails to wipe off as I leaf through the albums, one by one.
Sometimes, I break into a laughing fit at how my brother and I looked as kids, the kind of clothes we wore, and so many other hilarious moments associated with them. To put it in other words, I would go back in time, relive those memories, and become a child all over again.
Some pictures get mouldy as time goes by. Yet, the memories associated with them remain in the heart forever.
Yes, we surely have grown with time. Now we access pictures in a matter of seconds from our phones. Cloud storage has made it easier to access pictures from any device.
What hasn’t changed is the warm and welcome feeling that washes over us when an old picture shows up. Exhilarating feelings, as they say!
