Capturing Memories..!!

Some Days  back, as I was checking my facebook updates, I found that my Chachu had also got a FB account. I went to his profile &................

The cute display pic just left me staring at the monitor. He had actually scanned a pic of his childhood & uploaded it. Now it was a pic of the four brothers & the best part....my Dad was also in the pic. I just woke up my Dad & asked him to to see the pic. The fact that the pic taken around 40 years ago, was still preserved with someone in spite of the frequent shifting was amazing. Dad loved it. Sleep aside, he zoomed the B&W pic & told us the story about the pic. It was taken by a neighbour who had got a camera  in those days or something. That Smile...On seeing that pic.. Was Priceless...

Fast Forward 30 years......

If you ask me about my childhood pics,I have a few pics taken on some special occasions like when I was a month old, year old, birthdays and all... At this time, capturing memories on specific days using the roll camera which was later on developed and preserved in the form of albums was very common... Its so simple and yet so nostalgic.. Remember looking at those school pics taken with the class?? Those specific birthday party pics...Pics clicked during outings....Requesting someone to click a family picture that includes everyone.. Loads and loads of memories...!! I still ose a track of time when I browse through the few old photo albums we have at home...



Fast Forward 20 years more.....

Welcome to the world of digital Photography... Clicking photos with DigiCam and Mobile Phone Cam is as easy as 1,2,3.. Click..Save/Delete.. Click Again....!! The introduction of these  modern mediums of clicking pics and capturing memories has made our task so simple that now we can click pic each and every day and we can also have a photo journal based on all pics clicked in the entire year.. There is really no need of any special occasion or function to click pics.. Its just common to click pics anywhere and everywhere.. At the Station, In the train, On a holiday, In the college, In office.. At the restaurant..At the movies.. Ar the monuments.. In short at every single place that one can think of.. And not to forget the selfies... U don't even need anyone else to click your pic.. Just turn your phone, Point the lens... Pout..And Click.. There you Go..!! :)

Seriously, we have come a long way considering the way memories were and are being captured.. From Black and White photos to Instagram and HashTags... Just trying to guess.. What next..??!!!
