Memories, why we take photo for

I am in the way archive photos, yes, archiving photo, as it reaching "monster" size, laptop and external hard drive is not the best place to keep them anymore. I am put them to network attached storage (NAS), centralize storage that can be connected and make use of them. One of the main reason, despite it is the most costly solution, but it allow practical unlimited storage by just add in additional hard drive to run as single aggregate storage. For this, it really sort one of the my photo storage pain point. In a year now days I can take around 3k photo per trip for 6 average a year, it is close to 18k photos. And now days I take DSLR, where the photo files is much large then before. I think those who have similar usage will know what I mean.

Along the progress archive photos, few photo pop up in my mind want to share. I think they are catching the essential for the reason we take photo for - the "sweet memories" we want to keep, whether it is professional shot with DSLR or just normal phone or point and shot camera, it catch my memories while I look into those photo. The sweet memories all come back. Here the sweet and warm feeling want to share since I spot them while in the way archive photos.

I saw it and immediate bring back my sweet memories. Off course, no DSLR, just normal point and shot scene. I think it capture and freezing the sweet memories for me and my son. This got to thank for my wife make the shot. Everyone, we as human being, we take photo for sharing, for freezing the particular moment that last for our whole life. Now saw back, kid if really growing very fast, I think that kind of complicate psychological emotion, will be know by those who as the father also, maybe for mother will be understood too.
