Capturing Memories

A man takes a photograph of the Cloud Gate in Chicago Nov. 25.

Every time something special happens in our lives, we run the risk of accidentally altering the memories we recall, or even worse, we forget those moments completely. That seems to be happening less and less, however. Lately all I see are people around me collecting their memories by storing them into a device, be it a phone or a camera.Wherever people are or whatever they are doing, they will always be able to recollect the memories from their past thanks to these photos. Just one visit to Chicago during Thanksgiving break showed many people recording memories to cherish.
