Doc Searls lost his Mom last week. She lived to ninety years old. He’s been sharing many of his feelings on his weblog. He’s also been sharing special pictures from his family – and his Mom’s – life. Today’s is especially sweet, along with his amazing commentary:
Whatever else I’ve learned from going through boxes of old photographs, it’s clear to me now why people take pictures of people. It isn’t just to capture moments, to record history, to make art, or just to fool around, though it’s all those things and more. It’s to tell stories. Including stories people don’t even know they’re telling.
Stories that you don’t know you’re telling — stories that others see in those photographs many years later.
