As a frequent traveler, I take a lot of pictures. My phone alone holds more than 30,000 pictures and videos combined.
I have always had an interest in photography hence you’ll understand my interest in visiting this Photography museum
in Penang, Malaysia.
Checking out more than 50,000 parts of different camera brands dated back from 100 years ago and I realize I don’t know anything about photography; good thing there was an instructor nearby to guide us through and explain everything in depth.
I could lie and say I remember a quarter of everything taught to me on this day but no way, I don’t even remember who clicked this picture haha!
I’m however grateful for my eyes have seen and genuinely appreciated the growth that has progressively emerged through photography.
What could we do without cameras? Where or how would we have store our forgotten memories that remain permanent in history, allowing us to look back in retrospect? Maybe we drew…I wonder. Or maybe we told tales… I guess it’s that time of the year I visited my grandparents for more ‘wise tales from the past’ After all, there is no better story teller than those that lived through it.
Till next time…
