Photos are the best ways to capture our memories and preserve them forever. We visit certain places; we meet certain people; we attend certain events and we experience certain things. We click pictures to capture the beautiful moments of life so that we can go through them at a later time. Photos are the best way in which you can bring back the moments that are gone. Photos can bring back so many memories that we may have forgotten. We often laugh looking at the moments we cried and we often cry looking at the moments we laughed. Photographs can take us on a journey through our memory lane.
With photographs, we can picture a perfect world. A world that is made up of joys, sorrows, and love. It may be a picture of you dancing in the rain. It may be a picture of you and your best friend when you visited your dream place. It may be a picture of your daughter when she took her first step. It may be the first selfie you took with your crush. It may be the most awaited office trekking trip group photograph that you will cherish forever. It may be the last photograph of your parents together before they got split. It may be the picture with a cute dog you found while wandering the roads of a beautiful city. It may be a cake-face photograph of your sweet sixteen. It can be anything.
