I planned to write a post on some “existential questions” about photographs, but then decide not to, as you guys are probably bored with that topic already. Anyway, I saw the scenes of people laughing when looking back at their family photo album in the movie. It got me thinking – we don’t do that often anymore, do we? Maybe because we have so many photos these days that make it hard to select, to print and keep in an album. Maybe a life of a photograph ends when it is posted on Facebook and will be forgotten completely in a year, or just a week.
These photos of my family were taken in only 30′, just before I was leaving to the airport, back to Singapore. Strangely enough, it is the only time where I can have everyone gathered and a good lighting in the morning to shoot with.
And they make me smile, happily.
