More Selfies Please

Request from Future Historians

Getting tired of selfies? Future historians say more please. Genealogists agree; they will want to know the person behind camera. How can I be certain? Because I’m sifting through boxes of old family photos. Mom is the family photographer and she has faithfully chronicled decades of our lives. Her perspective comes through beautifully. We have been covered by her talent, love, and careful attention to both big moments and small. Mom is a beautiful person, the one behind the camera. For every photo of Mom there are 20 photos Dad. Literally, I counted. If only selfies had been a thing back then. If only it had been socially acceptable. Please don’t let the selfie fad fade away. Future historians thank you.
