I mean, you could just scroll through the post attached to the hashtag that was designated just for this beautiful occasion on various social media sites, vlogs and in someones old point and shoot, which they have no clue how to upload. But hey, I digress.....Once you've been awakened with multitudes of notifications and after you've blinked your eyesight back to its original 20/20, you find the images attached to that "howinthehell" hashtag and you smile because, it was epic. Memories like these will be remembered for decades and you're excited to see just how much you see in these hashtagged memoirs that look familiar but who cares. It was epic.
You see, I am the "eyes" in the room. I see all, I hear all and I can imagine all. The best part of this is that, 90% of my interactions happened silently. You don't know it but we had the best time ever, and not one word was said. There is a sweet hidden language between shooter and subject. What's that old saying, "a picture is worth a thousand words" and you might as well tack on there that quote about the eyes being the window to the soul. I snapped a pic here, there and everywhereeeeeee. We've had a great time! You smiled, I smiled and not a word was said. From where I stand, I, can live out loud and also swim in my own silence. My creativity booms loudly with every closed shutter and every flash that flickered throughout the four corners of the room. I catch the crowds reaction to the birthday girl as she danced wildly to her favorite song; watched and admired the love I've witnessed between the "man of the hour" and his guest. Maybe even a closeup of a detail that sums up what the whole event commemorates. I see it all. And it is beautiful!
But like they say, the party must end and the 'still' beauty that I captured yesterday will be imprinted on my character as well as the attendees for the rest of our lives; the true honor that I carry, as your record keeper.
So as I said before, yes....that NIGHT WAS TRULY EPIC. Andddddd, will remain so, to this day. In our minds. In our hearts. And forever digitally.
