Magnified Perspective

I bought a magnifying glass today to study photographs of me and my surroundings as a child. What was I holding? What was the name of that book that I have zero recollection of? Signs of aging no doubt and the last time I saw this photo as I child I was horrified by how skinny I was. Now I just see me as normal.

One thought on “Magnified Perspective

  1. I did the same thing with a shoebox full of 35mm negs, and it was an amazing journey. Made me wonder, though… how will future generations revisit the tiny details of their digital photo memories? I’m pretty sure an AI-enabled bot will do it for them, but somehow — to me, anyway — that idea sucks all the oxygen out of nostalgia.
