When I was younger, I was so in love with photography. I carried my camera everywhere and snapped pictures of everything. It's what I did and who I was.
At some point, I stopped taking my camera everywhere, stopped snapping pictures of everything, and lost the excitement. It happened so slowly, over such a long period of time, that I didn't even notice. We'd go somewhere and I'd forget the camera, or I had the big/heavy lens on and didn't feel like lugging it around... that sort of thing.
I want camera magic again. I'm not talking about amazing photos or elaborate photo shoots, I just want to capture everyday life on more than an iPhone.
I went out tonight and bought myself a bigger purse so that my camera can come everywhere with me. To hold me accountable, "snapshots" will be a new series on my blog. I'm pretty excited to fall back in love with snapping pictures... oh, and having so many more tangible memories is a total bonus.
