History is a perpetual process. People are always achieving; nature is always running its course. Old things fade; new things arise. Time keeps moving forward. It happens. It becomes an event. It becomes history. And sometimes we capture that moment and it becomes the history we know and learn.
There is an element of historical importance in every event. Big or small. That ham sandwich that you Instragam’d yesterday may not be exactly the stuff of history books, but someone may look at it a hundred years from now in wonder and awe.
At the other end of the spectrum are powerful images that can give you a history lesson at one quick glance. They may not explain everything, but they certainly draw you in to want to learn more. It’s amazing how much important historical significance can be captured in one photo. (We love this one/Rosa Parks.)
History is also found in those seemingly random and inconsequential moments, like the photo to the left. This isn’t the history of history books. It’s the history of two people at first. But soon it becomes the history of their children and their grandchildren. Someday, a hundred people may look back on this photo and feel a connection to it. Take a closer look just for kicks.
Just remember that history is always happening. And it is happening all over the place at Glow Images, with collections specifically dedicated to history and also within many of the collections you already know and love.

This week images come the royalty-free Blend collection and photographer Colin Anderson. It may be too early to reminisce about the warm days of Spring, but the frost on our windows made us misty for those moments momentarily. But we are looking forward to the upcoming season. The crisp fall days and the winter snowfalls have their own special place. View more from this shoot here.
