I didn’t even think about this until I was asked to title today’s image. The title that popped into my head was “Preservation of Youth.”

Preservation of Youth by David Bickley Photography

Why? Seems obvious right? It’s a stone kid. Then the parallel hit me…

I’m a year older today.

Was I thinking about that when I shot the image, or when I thought up the title? Not consciously. In fact, all I was thinking was “I’ve never been able to get into this fountain before” and “perhaps I shout take a photo for today’s post since all I’m doing right now is watching my students take pictures.”

Yet things like this make me wonder. Am I oblivious to the reasoning behind what I shoot? Did a reason actually ever exist, or am I just making one up because it fits so well?

Can’t say, but I think it’s interesting.

I have to say thank you to all of my friends, family and fans worldwide for taking the time out to wish me a happy birthday today. I’m gonna say it again via every social media thing I have as well. It means so much to me that you all support me and my work so faithfully.

Thank you.

See you tomorrow,
