Does Photography Make you Alive?

2015.12.02  

Asher asked me last week if photography makes me alive. This is from a kid who has been photographed almost every single day of his life by his father. I could have explained that my photography captures what is alive for me to remember and share. But to be honest...I was speechless. I try to take my pictures really quickly so Asher never looks over (like he did to the barber last night) and asks, "how much longer is this going to take??" I am hoping much much longer.
