I am thankful

I am thankful for my camera! I have always liked taking pictures. I once took pictures, endless pictures of friends, family, parties, gatherings, you name it. I am a sentimental gal who loves to look back at old family photos. I enjoy seeing how drastically things have changed over the years. I love the story behind a picture.

After having Carter, a camera has become a permanent accessory to my wardrobe. You can almost always count on me having my camera with me, or my point and shoot camera in my bag or purse. You never know when you'll need it. Today I grabbed my camera to take some pictures of the boys outside playing. With each frame I took, I thought to myself, I love this camera. Is that bad that I'm in love with a camera? Granted, I still have so much to learn... me and my camera are quite a team!

I have over 17,000 pictures on my computer. My sister and brother in law ask me all the time, have you cleaned off your computer lately? Umm, no. I'm sorry but when on earth do that expect that I have time to do such a time consuming task?! Seriously, I have pictures to take, not time to take pictures off the computer! Geez! Yes, I've signed up for online back up, I have an external hard drive but I still prefer to put them on a disc. Call it O.C.D if you will.

I am so thankful that I upgraded to the Canon 40D. It has made a world of difference in my picture taking. I enjoy every minute that I use it. :)

Yep, your photographs are beautiful. My next wishlist will include a new camera; mine is decent now, but I lust over one like yours.

Being able to look at a picture and remember the moments that surrounded it; it truly is something to be thankful for.
