A Day in The Life :: Feb 20, 2009

February 20 2009

It was a really good experience to carry the camera yesterday and shoot constantly. And I loved watching the day unfold in pictures, just those ordinary daily moments becoming captured memories. Most of our days look just like that, except the poop diapers and the general chaos was gently edited out...mainly because I cannot hold a camera and manage chaos at the same time. I might drop the camera.

A Day in the Life

I am eternally grateful to have the means to capture these moments via photography. It is such a powerful tool. I know I do not need 30 or so gigabytes of stored memories burned into DVD after DVD, I know I should edit more, become ruthless with the delete button. But I just cannot. Because those moments, their mine. Even though they are just every day, ordinary moments.

You should try your own Day In the Life. You never know what might come into focus.
You can see our slide show here if you are interested. Watching it makes me realize why I am so tired at the end of the day. But it just means it was a good one.

Awesome! Love it. External hard drives are becoming a lot cheaper now. I always back mine up in two places. DVD's and CD's sometimes go blank after a few years.

Lovely photos (as always!).

I think my favorite of the bunch (and generally a non-keeper) is the pic of the Olive Garden takeout. How many times have I eaten takeout in the last three years???

Loved the pictures. What kind of camera do you use? I am in the market for a new one. My cannon powershot is just not doing it anymore.

I always love to walk past old houses and wonder what the people who live inside must be doing or what they are like in real life (I always think that everyone else is far more interesting than me) This glimpse into your day is just like that and I loved the slide show:):) More, more!!!!
