Thom Hamilton knows how one image can spark a memory, or tell an entire story. That’s why the Vancouver man is harnessing the power of social media to return 1,200 memories to the mystery couple who lost them. Hamilton, a hobby photographer himself, was snapping some photos in Stanley Park Wednesday.
As he picked up his gear, Hamilton noticed a micro SD card lying on the ground. The cross Canada trip seems to be a rather important memory for the older couple within the images, thus, the importance of getting these memories back to their respective owners is all that Hamilton wants to do. The glory of social media.
Hamilton is hoping that Facebook will reveal a connection between him and the travellers, so he can return their lost memories. Therefor, anyone who says that Facebook was never useful, has just been proven wrong. Sort of.
