Stories about those days.

The stories that people have about Jamie’s photos are a source of amazement.  Some are of the “that’s me and we were doing this” type of stories from Jamie’s friends. Some are the “I never met Jamie but this was taken on my birthday and it means a lot to me. And some are just stunningly moving one of a kind stories.

    I was born on this day. I find it interesting that this can easily describe me. I love photography. Taking photos of other people, especially women.

    My only child, a son. was born on this day. Like the picture, it was a day with bursts of light, but also very blurry and confusing, Shortly after delivery we found out that my son had Down Syndrome. I am happy to say that over the years, my son has grown into an amazing, brave, hilarious and sometimes stubborn man. He turns 29 tomorrow and I am so grateful for him.

    This is the day I arrived at basic training. I see that we had a very different experience this morning. It is very humbling to look at a date in time and see what someone else, completely disconnected from you was experiencing. Beautifully, thought providing and very calmining in a way.

    Thank you so much for this site.

    The birthday of the beautiful woman who loves me. I am forever grateful to this universe for making her. Without this day I might have never know my own daughters. I might have never known how strong love can truly be. I might have not made it this far on my own.
    The single most important day in my life and it took almost 25 years to even start finding that out.

    Thank you Jamie for taking the all these beautiful pictures. Your eye was special. Thank you Hugh for showing it to me. It has allowed me to reflect on the things I hold most dear.

    I was born in 92′, on this very day, the 7th of February.
    My mother was rushed in to the hospital in the worst snowstorm that had ever struck my hometown since they started measuring weather in 1889. She always mention that it was such a hassle to get to the hospital every time we talk about that.

    Somehow, I managed to turn out rather okay. I’m soon turning 25 and I’m going to school to become an engineer. I recently moved to a new town here in Sweden and I’ve made some loosely connected friends. However I did just find out that the girl I was with for four years up until august this year announced that she’s getting engaged with some new guy she met. I asked her to marry me, and that’s why she left me. At first I didn’t believe it, but according to a mutual friend this guy propsed with a ring “the size of an apple”. The ring I propsed with wasn’t, but I really hope that wasn’t the reason for her to make the decision that she did.

    I love this site, and I appreciate you for keeping it up.

    Thank you.

    Jonas

    The day I was born. 2 months premature and with a weird infection that almost killed me as well as my mother. So just like Phil a broken day.

    This picture was taken on the day I was born. I figured this picture would have been something having to do with Christmas but thanks to me coming, my parents Christmas also had nothing to do with the holiday. Real life happens on the holidays as well.
