I have always loved taking pictures.
In high school I usually had one, two or three (yikes!) disposable cameras tucked in my bag.
My parents hated having to pay to develop the amount pictures I would take, and when I got my first point and shoot it only got worse!
You know those annoying people who walk around with a camera slung around their necks, always pointing it at random things....yep, that's me!
But I wouldn't trade it for anything!
Just looking back through my albums over the years reminds me why I annoy people without shame. I'm documenting life! Losing someone you love reminds you just how important pictures are. In fact, when someone dies what is the first thing you do...go through pictures! We spend hours going through every picture we can find to try and freeze images into our memories forever.
That's why I love my camera.
My camera is my tool to remember my life and the lives of those I love.
I love hearing the shutter click and seeing the face of someone I treasure frozen in time. Sometimes they're great and sometimes they're not so great, but they are memories.
So yes, I am thankful for my camera.
