One of my new year’s goals this year was to take more personal photos. I think this has been on my goal list for the last 3 years and I fail every year. For some reason I’ve had it in my head that this requires taking pictures of things I do everyday, and I do basically the same things everyday so you can see how I quickly gave it up.
But then I started thinking about how much I instagram all the little bits of my life and thought “Why the heck am I not using my actual camera for this??” I mean sure iphones are a bit (or a lot) quicker and easier, but it’s still just not the same. (Don’t get me wrong, I still fully believe that instagram is one of the greatest things ever.)
So this last week I’ve been picking up my camera a bit more. Just shots of random little things that light up my mood a little. I know I’ll appreciate these little bits further down the road.
