Hardly Any Really

This week we’re talking about photos. I hate to admit that I do not take as many pictures as I used to which is strange considering that I have a camera on my phone and it is always with me. My phone is rather slow so by the time that I get my camera to open what I wanted to take a picture of has already passed.

I used to carry a camera with me nearly everywhere when my children were little. I loved taking photographs of them. I especially loved black and white photos. I think there is something romantic and nostalgic about black and white photos. When my digital camera broke I wasn’t able to replace it. A few years later I purchased a 35 mm camera but it is a little bulky to carry around all the time. I tend to use it for special occasions.

I was searching through my camera roll on my phone and found that it is mostly filled with Wyatt and Jessica. Wyatt likes to take my phone to take goofy selfies for me to discover later. They usually crack me up at just the right time. Jessica is usually snuggled up to a cat in pictures of her.

There are a few pictures of things that I see at the store that I think my kids will like or things that I want to try to make. Of course there are some screenshots of recipes that I want to try as well.

But really I think my gallery on my phone only has about 30 pictures in it.

Do you take a lot of photos?

    I was a photo-journalist & editor for several years — both civilian &military papers — so I took a lot of pix back then. At one time, I had a nice Pentax SLR 35 mm with a few additional lenses… and shot stuff with real film. But those pricey days of film and prints caused my camera to remain in its case… and I eventually sold the lot.
    I take a few pix of things with my phone camera, but not nearly as many as most of the people I know and observe.

    I’m the opposite – when my kids were young I didn’t take as many pictures, but my dad did, otherwise I wouldn’t have so many of them. Maybe I was too busy working and taking care of them to think about hauling my camera out of the case (instead of chasing after them). Now, I have more time, and with the phone camera it’s a lot easier, so I have to remind myself to delete the duplicates!

    I still think you can get some nice pictures with a 35mm camera. We have one, but as you say we seldom use it because of the weight.

    I have a lot of cat and dog pictures on my phone, as well as pictures of places we’ve traveled in the past oh, seven years. I pay for extra cloud storage and now I’ve used that up. I try to go through and delete the ones I no longer need or want but still end up keeping far too many. I also have two large plastic file boxes of print photos from when our kids were young (a long time ago!). Someday I will sort through them and put them in proper photo boxes. Maybe a good project for a snowy winter day!


  5. Black and white photos are precious in my family. Now we have them more than 100 years old, but many from the 1930, which is almost there.
