Capture or Live in the Moment?
Much to my husband's dismay, I pretty much take my camera everywhere with me. We'll be on one of our family explores and I stop for 15 minutes at a time to capture gigantic mushrooms, or miniscule bugs, a pretty flower, or the texture of tree bark. But I am also able to freeze moments like this one in time. My two older kiddos decided to bring their cameras along on this walk, and it was fun to have some partners in crime. (Although stalking skittish animals proved to be a little more challenging with two or three of us vying for position.) It's important for me to remember to take some time to live in the moment, as constantly shooting photos can detract from the pleasure of spontaneity a bit.
Are you a crazy camera person, or do you prefer to tuck experiences away in your memories?
