I probably blogged about this before, but I attach my memories to the songs I listen to. So when I listen to Ingrid Michaelson’s Maybe I remember working on Charlene’s and Steve’s wedding photographs. Likewise, I listened to U2’s Bad when I was in Ireland and while processing the photographs from Ireland, so I will forever remember my journey whenever listening to the song.
Sometimes the songs I listen to have absolutely NO relevance to what I am processing, yet, later on when the song plays again I will immediately remember what I was processing and how I was feeling. Memory Cueing.
What do you listen to, photographers (wedding or not) when you process your photographs? Do you recall those memories later when you relisten to that song?
