Just this last week or so, I have started bringing my digital SLR camera around with me again when I go out. I have been so lazy about that ever since the iphone came into my possession. I almost think it’s the reason I’ve stopped blogging as much too – just because I don’t have as many high quality images of every day life to share and also Instagram is just right there, so easy and so immediate.
But truthfully, I miss my camera. I’ve started leaving it out at home too, so that when Genevieve is snuggling so adorably with our dog, or her brother, or her baby dolls, or when Baker puts on the cat costume or builds a really cool block building…I can capture that. I’m trying to live a little more without my phone constantly in hand – it’s really hard, but I’m trying. For that reason too, I like having my camera always at the ready.
The other day we were at a friend’s house and she has beautiful Camellia trees in her yard so I took some photos. It’s not so much about the photo, but just about the doing. I feel like I’ve lost a bit of that drive lately.
In the spirit of doing I have a very unrealistic list of things I’d like to get done this weekend, but whatever I get to I know I’ll have my camera with me and perhaps something fun to share next week.
Happy weekend. xoxo
