......and I am an addict.
I am adicted to pictures.
I love to take them, I love to look at them, I love to see how other people take them and how they process them. I love everything about them.
I suppose that's because my mom took about 5 million pictures of us when we were growing up - it must have somehow seeped into me - like osmosis.
My dad also takes a lot of pictures.
So, it was inevitable, right?
I just wish that:
1. I had more time to take pictures of things I want to take pictures of. Right now I am lucky to get one or two snapshots each day and they're usually of the every day things that happen around here, like dressing up the dog in a Snow White dress or rollerskating on Grandma's old skates.
2. I had lots of disposable $$ to spend on fantastic lenses, cameras and software. Like the girl I overheard in the camera shop saying "well, I know I won't use it that much, but I need a telephoto lens to use when I do weddings.....nah, $2500 isn't too much".
3. I had beautiful children to take pictures of.
**OH! Wait! I already have #3**
Look at that - I am only 1/3 of the way there to getting my 3 photography wishes!
