These "captured moments" are some of my best photographs as a amateur photographer. Each of them spoke to me, created a memory, and taught a lesson. In sharing them, I hope you benefit from the lessons learned.
This basketball goal forced some philosophical reflection as I faced reality today. That lesson is condensed into one statement - our ever-increasing age is not something to be lamented but, rather, should be celebrated.
Far too often, we grieve getting older because we can no longer do the things of our youth (e.g. play basketball at the same level). We should change our perspective about age and embrace it. Yes, we lose the ability to do certain things from our past, BUT we gain a right perspective that those things never really mattered anyway. With each passing year, age reveals what is most important about life. Are you getting it?
