Taking a picture may not actually stop time, but it definitely snags a moment of it. Push the shutter, and you make an imprint of something elusive. It's like being a kind of quantum wizard and forcing all those spinning quarks to pause.
When I take a picture, I get to slow down life's mad rush and notice things I might have missed. Like the bright afternoon sky. Or the girl's rainbow hair. Or the man's crinkly, unexpected smile.
