Photographs show a slice of time, but it is not a limitless slice. They serve to remind us of moments while at the same time affecting our memory of that moment. We may notice smiles or frowns in a snapshot that we were unaware of in the moment. Take some time to reflect on your own experience with family pictures. Are you the one organizing the picture? How do you feel about having your photo taken? Are photos a burden to be endured at family gatherings or do you enjoy looking through the albums with everyone? We carry our own feelings into our teaching. How do your feelings about photography and its place in your life carry into your work with the group?
