Why Photos Are Priceless

I love being a photographer. A photo can tell a story of the people, places and events that you treasure.

I know how cherished photos are. I still recall the feeling when my Grandparents home was flooded and I found the photos covered in muddy flood water! This happened a short time after my Pop passed away after battling cancer and my Nanna was really struggling to cope with the loss. So seeing those muddy photos was like being hit… To me they were most precious things in that home, they were the reminders of all the joyous times my Nan and Pop had had. Reminders of falling in love and raising a family. Reminders of all the people they have loved. Reminders of the silly, funny and amazing personalities that had touched them. That is why my husband and I lovingly cleaned and dried them. Photos are priceless because they are your link to those people in that time and the link to my grandparents was worth days of soaking, washing and drying mud soaked cards.

    Thank you Ms Stripey 🙂
    My Nan actually passed away a few days after the floods (although I did get a chance to take some of the saved photos to her) so the photos are absolutely priceless now!
