Say cheese


July 21, 2008 by 8junebugs

Years ago, I went photo-crazy. I think it’s because there aren’t many photos left in my family from before I was born, and what we do have is poorly labeled, if at all.

So I got a better camera (35mm) and started documenting family events and vacations. I’ve gotten a little better over the years — at least I get more shots of people now. The photos from my elementary school field trips are full of hills and buildings and bodies of water, all shot with 110 film in a camera about the size of a candy bar.

While I was married, though, there was really only room for one photographer in the house. I got a digital camera for Christmas in 2006 but rarely used it. I rarely journaled, either — I tend to think these two lapses in my normal Capture Everything habits are related, but that’s a different post althogether.

But now I’m back at it again and having a lot of fun. It’s also easy to slip into the unofficial photographer role at events when you’re there on your own. Below are some of my favorites from this year, as well as a couple from last year.

    This is highly postmodern.

    Way better than calling me scattered. 😉

    Mostly it’s the giant red boxes I’m calling postmodern.

    I would never dream of implying you were scattered. Sounds messy.

    You’re forgiven.

    WordPress, and, by default, Amaz0n, is not.
