I love cameras. I love taking photos. I love being in photos. I even love selfies. I’ve always loved taking photos- of friends, of the perfect setting, the butterflies dancing in my flowers, my nieces, my cats, my beloved dog.
A camera is never far from my hands. Even in the days of Iphones (and I don’t deny that they do take great photos) I still generally have my Canon T3I near me.
Someone once asked me why I love to take photos- and my glib reply is “So when I’m 90, I can look back at photos and say I’ve had a fun life.” But more the real answer is: So I have memories to cherish. I can look back at photos and recall things- the smell in the air, or maybe what was happening outside the frame of the photo, or was that the Christmas that I got the best toy ever?
When I was younger, my mom took pictures. Of course that was in the day of film and having to wait to get photos developed (no 1 hour photo then!) and sometimes photos were relegated to special days- birthdays, family events, holidays. Today, I’m only limited in what I can take in storage (and I keep plenty of SD cards) or battery power.
So for me….. taking photos is like breathing air. It doesn’t have to be a special day. Any day is a good day to pull out your camera and snap a picture- a sunset, a day at the pool, a beautiful flower, a snowcone, your child being silly- the options are limitless!!!!!
Some of my fave photos- snapped by me or that have me in them 🙂
And some more…..
And even more….
