Sometimes I DO leave my camera at home, but it’s pretty rare these days. I’m not sure if I should admit this, but I’m full blown addicted to taking pictures. Actually, I think it’s a problem some days because I can’t just seem to relax without thinking, “OH! That would make a good picture!” Photography has also allowed me to notice much more beauty in the world. I’m not talking the typically aesthetic beauty either. I just tend to stop and see the little things. The other day (when I DIDN’T have my camera), the most beautiful dragon fly decided to share lunch with us. He sat next to Popcorn and Pompom for almost 30 minutes as we admired his red and black outfit. I could help but wonder if I would have noticed before. Whoever he/she was, it was a pleasure to spend the day together.
In the meantime, I continue to snap pictures of what I love most…much to their annoyance. But sometimes, I get a genuine smile!
