Read more about National Camera Day here.
I just learned about National Camera Day over on Messy Mimi’s Meanderings’ Friendly Fill-Ins post.
I have always loved photography, from the time that I was a little girl using a “finger camera” to photograph my parents when they kissed, to my teenage years with a Polaroid 600, to college years in the darkroom with David as he developed his photographs, to today with my old Canon Digital Rebel Xsi, and the camera in my iPhone 5s. I just can’t imagine life without a camera in it. I love photography!
I will never be perfect at it; my eyes and shaky hands will see to that. But, it brings me joy to sit outside and photograph the birds or to find a field of wildflowers in the spring or to catch a smile on my husband and children. Fuzzy or not, it records the moment and helps me to remember the moments of our lives.
And, photographs keeps with us those that have long gone ahead of us to their final rewards. I may not be able to remember the sound of their voices forever, but I have their photographs to help hold onto the memories.
So, grab your camera and get out there and capture a memory today!
