Have you ever seen a great picture of you?

Have you ever thought of who took it?

And the fact that the photographer never appears in the picture?

Look back though your photographic memories and thank the person who thought YOU were important enough to immortalize in a picture.

Here's toast, to the quiet immortalizers of the greatest events of our lives.

1. As a photographer, I agree.

I'm virtually never in photos because I'm usually the one with the camera. But when I am, it's wives and close friends who take the great ones.

It seems to be the case that the closer the photog and subject are emotionally, the better the pic. When you're close to your subject, you almost instinctively choose better framing and expressions in order to show them in their best light.

2. A few years back

I asked my father for all his old slides. I scanned them and made a little video with music and played it for all 14 of us now.
He wasn’t in any of the pictures and these photos spanned almost 20 years. He could make a roll of film last 2 years! lol
At first it made me quite sad not having any pictures of him from those years but then I realised he was happiest behind the camera, selflessly documenting our lives for us.

I am so glad he did.
