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.
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.
