I haven't been taking many photos,
and now that I'm in the mood to scrap,
the well has run dry.
Uh oh. Bad bad. I need to fix that, pronto.
I think the problem is that I haven't really surfaced lately,
and because I have been so preoccupied with so many other things,
I haven't noticed many "photo-worthy" moments.
Noticing, after all, takes time and patience,
a special kind of willingness to tilt one's head
and shift one's perspective,
but I've been too swept up in the busy-ness of life
to take the time to really see through the lens,
to focus, and wait for the click.
It doesn't help that my camera hasn't been cooperative with me.
For every two pictures I take lately, I get three or four error messages.
I thought it was the lens at first, but I get the error messages
even when I switch out the lens. Argh.
I think it's time for a new camera.
If only... (hint, hint, Santa Claus).
Anyway, I will be taking my point-and-shoot with me
everywhere I go for the next few days,
in the hopes that I will remember just how great the view can be
from the other side of the lens.
Perspective. That's what I need.
Since I am short on photos lately, I had to dig deep -- as in, 35 years back --
in order to create this layout:
(More details can be found at Two Peas in a Bucket)
Ha. Yep, that's little me.
I love the "baby" feel to the layout. I miss scrapping baby photos.
Maybe I should ask Santa for a baby instead.
A baby and a camera. :)
Or just a really cute camera. Or a photogenic baby. Either way.
