Great Travel Photos are Timeless

Sometimes I wonder about a human’s need to capture a great moment with a photograph.  Don’t we inevitably become envious of the past every time we look at it?  Does our attachment with photos prevent us from moving forward into the future?

My answer:  sometimes.

There are some moments of our past that are better left behind, events best not remembered. Estes-Park But then there are times that are so grand that it would seem like a tragedy not to save that speck of time for future nostalgia.

In looking over a picture I took in Estes Park, Colorado a few weeks before the flood, I realized that some moments are timeless.  They represent neither a past nor a future.  Their significance is not in time.  Perhaps, their significance can’t be explained.  They simply need to be seen.
