My mind always focuses on what ifs.
One of my biggest regrets whilst living in England was not going to the Photography Museum (now known as the National Media Museum). I had friends who lived nearby. And even though we went through Bradford a few times, I never thought to stop and visit what is considered one of the best museums in Yorkshire. I’d like to think it’s because I was rejecting most forms of picture taking at this point in my life. Or maybe it had something to do with studying and working in museums all day every day…kind of turned me off to the whole “museum thing”. At least it’s something to look forward to when I visit my friends in the year 2045. If it’s still open.
