I don’t have an awesome camera, I don’t know any techniques to take great pictures … but I am picky about the photos I take. When I originally took this shot, on March 1st… there were a lot of imperfections I saw in it. Looking back today, there’s a lot more beauty in this picture that I could have imagined that night.
I am kind of a geek when it comes to technology… I love gadgets and all that crap … but its times like these when I can *truly* appreciate technology and how blessed we are to have it.
It’s a gift.
I’m thankful that today, I, with a tiny little device that fits in my pocket, can take a picture, upload in on some thing we call the internet (automatically, even! In case I forget to back it up!). I can go home later, log on to my laptop, and document things on this blog for my boy to check out when he is old enough to appreciate it.
Without getting all mushy and sh*t, let me just say this…. there will be times when you wish you can go back to how things used to be but you just can’t because things have changed so much. This picture was taken a month and a half ago, but today, Tuggy can’t jump on the bed next to grandma and laugh with her, mess with the remote to her bed, or put a flower in her head. Sure, this picture is blurry, and gray, and Camila isn’t looking at the camera…. but the story it tells to my son when he looks at it years from now is much more important and, all of a sudden, the imperfections in the photo don’t matter anymore.
