Stories about those days.

The stories that people have about Jamie’s photos are a source of amazement. Β 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.

      Me too! In Toronto Canada. Amazing how this man documented simple moments of life while we were all coming into the world and going about our lives, blithely unaware of how his documentation would later bring people to one place, a place of memories. A place where complete strangers find familiarity. Bravo Jamie! πŸ‘πŸ»

    This day was my parents 40th wedding anniversary, we all celebrated with a surprise party for them. They are no longer with us. It made me smile to see this picture of these people with a beer and some music, as if they were celebrating with us too.

    I was 8 years old today, I remember getting a birthday badge and sticking it on my t-shirt. I ran to the shops to gets some sweets and it came loose and fell off just as I was about the run across a road, a car sped past at the same time. I still remember thinking the badge had just saved my life that day..

    Thank you for sharing these pictures. Truly an amazing look at life through, a clearly great mans eyes. In a time where digital touched up photos are everywhere this is a warm reminder of a dying art. Thanks again.

    I discover Jamie’s story like most other people, Facebook. I was intrigued with his work and the nature of this project. Like most people I was looking for my birthday. This is it, beautiful, a wonderful representation of the holiday weekend.

    I saw a video about this website and was curious as to the picture he took on the day I was born. Upon seeing it, I really was unsure of how to feel about it. But after staring at it for a few long moments, I’ve figured out that it makes me happy. It’s the color yellow. I am not sure what his meaning for it was, but as art is interpreted individually, my take on it is a happy one. Yellow is the color of sunshine, of sunflowers, of smiley faces and rubber duckies. There are shades to it, not sure if those are just from the age of the photograph itself or if it was intentional, but darker shades of yellow are often interpreted as something negative and lighter yellows are positive… I see how the dark fades into much more lighter yellow. To me, it’s a transition from the bad to the good.
    I wish Jamie were alive today. I would thank him for this little bit of inspiration he has given me.
