A brief conversation with one of our children recently, made me realise how much we forget how things looked in the past. Sometimes it’s only a few months or years ago, and other times it’s decades. When I was up taking aerial photos in Loxton a few weeks ago, I took some photos of Loxton High School knowing that they have recently completed a STEM (science, technology, engineering, maths) building. It got me thinking that in 20 years time, our children will probably be saying to their children “I remember when the STEM building was built”, and this thought prompted me to record the school’s current property. Aerial photography is a great way to record a business, farm, or larger property, not just for the purpose of using for marketing now but for documenting how it looks now. Lots can change in 10, 20, 30 years. Photos aren’t just for appreciating now, they’re for the future.
