As photographers, I'm sure we all have a strong visual sense.
My sense of smell is the one that always amazes me.
I've heard it said that your sense of smell is the most powerful in terms of bringing back the memory of something. The smell of pipe tobacco will always bring me back to Massachusetts, the same way that one perfume will always make me pine for Christmas (no pun intended).
Lilacs, like htekmo's below, gardenia, honeysuckle, and ginger. Pizza, garlic, cinnamon rolls, and pancakes.
These are each associated with individual and distinct memories for me. And with just one whiff, they can whisk me away to the past. It's an incredible phenomenon.
How about you? Show us the smell or maybe even the memory if you can!
