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.
We decided to visit the Alamance Battleground as the location for our family pictures. Upon arrival, we noticed volunteers dressed in period garb and our kids had a wonderful time listening to tales from 250 years ago. At one of those presentations, my mind drifted and my eyes captured this moment - "Through the Open Doors of History."
I snapped a photo - from the present into the past - of the breeze-inducing openness of the Allen House (originally in Snow Camp, circa 1780). History is just like this photo.
We need a willingness to look through the doors of history so that we can learn how to live in the present. The look-learn-live cycle requires pause and reflection but, trust me, those moments are worth it.
What do you need to look through today so that you can be a better you tomorrow?
