Pictures of You, Pictures of Me…


Back on 3 November, 2007 when I first created this blog after being inspired by a friend of mine.   I never knew I would still be doing it for so many years, it just never occurred to me.   I remember when I was still coming up with the concept for the Uncertain Horizon, I knew I wanted to include photos and make it different from any blog I have maintained in the past.   I wanted it to be personal, but I wanted to write about how the photos made me feel… and sometimes the photos make me feel completely different from what is actually in the photo, and in more recent times I have taken to some of the many “Day Meme’s” that exist, and have experimented with them.   I also know that from My very first post (3 November, 2007,) all the way to 26 January,2009 my photo’s mostly came from my Samsung Sync phone, and since then it has been maintained with my Sony Cybershot with a sprinkling of photos from my phones since.

 This photo was actually taken with my Blackberry Curve; it was of a small photo that I found on the road.   I think it really symbolizes the reason that this blog was centered around photos to begin with.   You see, when I was about 10 years of age I went to a flea market and found several family photo albums from an estate sale.   I had no idea who the people were, but I found it very interesting, these were moments in these people’s lives, moments captured forever.   However while it was very sad that a family lost these captured moments, I was inspired to capture my own moments, and from that moment on I loved photos intensely.   And while I have no idea how this small piece of a photo found it’s way onto the street, or who the people are in it… or who took it originally… I find it fascinating, and mesmerizing.

I agree and feel very much like you do...if you look at the home page of Ocala Florida Photos and read the quote at the bottom of the page, I think you'll understand.

Re your comment on Ocala - as to golf balls; it might just be I hit most of them into the water! :-)

This photo certainly tells a story to the viewer.

Thanks for sharing your comments about starting this blog, I am sure that many of us feel the same way that you do.

What a sweet story. I'm glad those lost family photos lived on in a way =)

I adore old photos of people I don't even know. It's the story behind the story, the lives frozen in time.

Wow. And you've been around a while! That's a good thing.
