it'll last longer...
One day while I was still in school, I was walking through the halls and I heard a girl say to a guy who was staring just a bit, "Take a picture, it'll last longer!" I kind of chuckled because it just didn't seem like the kind of thing a person actually says. Maybe you read it on a t-shirt, but to actually shout it out at a random guy? Interesting.
But pictures do last longer. For example, the latte above is long gone. And the embroidery has changed too. Last night I read on someone's Flickr page that they don't take enough pictures, and I feel that way too. I want more snapshots (even the bad ones) to remember the silly little things. Like sipping coffee on Thursdays with my sister while I stitch and we talk about life.
So I took pictures while walking today. I started taking some where I set the camera down and just shot a picture. These two steps above were taken like that and I rather like the view. I'm going to do this more. And as a side note, those stone steps are favorites of mine. There's just something about them.
Also in the mix of taking these photos is that I started using the little point and shoot camera again. My sister is very generous in letting me use her Nikon D60, but I don't always want to impose, and this gives me a bit more freedom. The photos aren't the same, but with the magic of Photoshop actions, the difference isn't as great. For all of these photos I tried out Pioneer Woman's free action sets. They are great!
Enjoy the rest of your day! Maybe I'll get a few more pictures in today...you should too!
