I have an addiction, as Momza would call it, my 'go to thang'. It is taking pictures. I just love to....no make that, need to take pictures. I usually carry the camera every where I go.
As a matter of fact, my grandson Ky-Ky calls the camera, 'Cheese'. That tells me he has heard this phrase a few too many times.
Now that is not truly my problem, you see, the problem is, it takes me, oh,...about a thousand pictures before I get the shot just the way I want it (you know, not fuzzy or off center).
I want so badly to have the eye of a great photographer, but I don't..so I continue to shoot at anything that stands still, hoping against hope that I will capture the very essence and soul of my subject.
And then just when I am feeling dejected and downtrodden, I come up (quite accidentally) with a picture that makes me feel, oh, I don't know, swooney and I catch my breath and think, this is it, this is what I saw through the lens. And I am once again renewed and prepared for the next thousand pictures.
