Memories …

Memories …

Remember that Barbara Streisand song from ‘The Way We Were’? Just in case you’ve forgotten, here’s the link to it on Youtube:

Enjoyed  the nostalgia? We all do, the way we keep those special memories close are by
the mementoes we have of them. Music, souvenirs – and more often photo’s.

Sometimes the memories we seek to preserve are easily lost or damaged. Sometimes there’s a risk they never get preserved at all. Sometimes we’re too busy to make the record of the memories and then look back with regret – ‘I wish I had of a photo of that…’

With the digital age and such clever little cameras even built into our phones, we are all suddenly snap-happy and DIY photos and video regularly find their way on to Facebook for us to share. Yet, even though this way I recently enjoyed ‘being there’ at my daughters ‘matriculation’ at Oxford University, and seeing her and her friends capped and gowned for their first formal event as Oxford students, I have to say the images were a conglomeration of blurred, sideways, feet and tops of heads cut off and – what exactly was that last one…? My memory of my graduation from university is a beautifully lit and positioned portrait, of me – my goodness, looking so young! Which is best? Both, I guess, but how nice to have the choice.

It takes a special kind of person to capture the essence of all those moments and keep them safe for you, and that is what Anne Forrest does – so she’s a special kind of lady with a special kind of business too.

Then                                                                                               Now

Bring back those oldest of memories and treasure them for your children too:
