Wow, that title could take me a lot of places, but I’m talking about photography. Last night when I documented what my Friday night at 6:07 looked like I downloaded probably a year’s worth of photos that I really haven’t done anything with from my big camera.
For the past year I’ve been so busy building my web design business that I’ve forgotten about my camera and my love for photography. When I do take my camera out of it’s bag I take a few pictures and then put it back in it’s dark and lonely home.
I miss my little buddy. And worst of all when I pick up my camera it feels foreign in my hands and I can’t remember how to work all it’s little knobs and settings. I’ve become so dependent on my iPhone camera (and you know I AM addicted to Instagram) and so busy with running a business that I’ve been treating my big girl camera like some one I don’t really like. Keeping it in the closet in it’s protected but dark little home and leaving her there for months at a time without even a hello.
But I do love my camera. I miss searching out how the light dances on an ordinary object. I miss taking her out to discover things with me.
I think this is a relationship I need to rekindle.
Here are a few pictures I found last night that I took months ago when I had some peonies.
I just made plans for tomorrow that will include some family time, mountains, and some Fall colors….and my camera is coming with me.
