Time waits for no one. What is sure about it - change.
What do we do with the time we have?
How do we remember what we've done with our time?
How have we changed over time?
In the midst of recent physical change, the builders working at Bramhall Methodist Church came across a time capsule. Buried at the construction of the church building it was discovered 108 years later.
Some documents, newspapers and coins from the 1904 were among the items left for a future generation to discover. It was only when time had passed and change came about that the capsule was discovered.
Now the construction is complete the time capsule has been reburied for a future generation to discover, along with a new one from today. Who knows when it will be found or by who, but for sure it will come when time has passed and change will again be upon the community that meets in that place.
I believe one way to remember our life, our time, and one that stands the test of it, is photography. Photographs are a living record of the who, a life as it was lived, a snapshot of the moment.
Photography can instantly transport us to a memory or emotion long after the moment has passed. Some we want to remember, others better left to the sands of time...
Time will tell where we end up, who we're with and what we'll look like, so make the most of now and capture life as it happens for you with Matthew Couper Photography.
By the way, the above image was published in a recent edition of the Stockport Express with an article about the discovery of the time capsule.
