Can somebody help me to understand what this sentence is trying to reveal?
"So these photos are far more than proxies for a single moment, or even a specific trip. They're also ways for us to freeze time for one week in October and reflect on our times and how we change from year to year, and not just physically, but in every way."
What I understand is the following:
The photos are not just the photos of a single trip or some specific trip. These photos are actually a medium (or stuff) which allows us a free week of October where we can really go back in to our past with the pictures to observe how we change from year to year, not only physically but also in attitude.
I would appreciate if you can explain me line by line so that I can follow. Thanks is advance.
