analyse how the writer sees the personal value of taking a photograph

There were three points I saw that reinforced the personal value of taking a photograph. One was that his photography allows him to capture a moment that will never be seen by anyone ever, “it’ll spiral up and fly away with each passing minute. lost in the wind, unless someone sticks out a hand to catch it” (<-explain) this quote is showing how capturing the photograph is like capturing a physical object, like a bug trying to fly away and you want to catch it before it disappears forever. the second point is photographer sees more than just a sunrise, he sees the inner beauty and wants to capture every bit of it “I’d point at the bare tree branches stretching up to reach the sky. I’d tell him that this Tuesday morning is sitting in my pocket now, safe from time.” (<explain metaphor, physical)
