    I like this.

    We overlook and take for granted the present.

    These are so beautiful! What I like the most about these pictures is that there’s a story behind them.

    This is really great. Probably the most fascinating things for me are the passage of time and the crazy, weird intersections between past, present, and future – the time capsules, preserved memories, discovered things. Looking back and seeing what’s been lost, what’s been found, what’s changed.
    I just think too much.

    I love to think of all the stories behind these.
    Just like that post on psychometry!

    My crazy history teacher describes time as a series of overlapping wavelengths, and there are certain things that connect us to our past where the “lines” overlap. Objects and pictures like these are what I imagine would be found at each of those intersections.

    This is really interesting. The last photo reminds me of a store near me. It’s a home decor shop in an old roller rink, and people have written on the walls. It’s all of the fun times they had and the injuries they got roller skating there.

    Beautiful photos! I love how you explored time and place and how these fragments of the past present themselves through objects that are emotionally evocative and makes us feel connected in some weird strange way.

    A classmate was looking over my shoulder when I looked at these, and at the end he said, “Is that supposed to be so sad?” It didn’t occur to me so clearly, but these are very, very melancholy. I think it’s the sadness that comes with looking back on memories you’ll never see again.

    This reminds me so much of my home in Philippines. Never actually lived there but I do take vacations and this brings back so many memories.

    These make you realise how time is interlinked with everything – things become the past, even if they’re not your past. Dead animals fade into time just as a shopping list does or a relative does. Time captures everything.
