I know you finished the line. I’m still singing. That song is one of my “favorite things,” which is the prompt for yesterday’s July Blogging Challenge. I am just not a daily writer, I guess. I have all these good intentions but daily writing is just hard for me to find time to do. So, I’m combining “My Favorite Things” with “Lights, Camera, Action”. This is a two-for-one post.
My Favorite Things:
- Simple things.
- Beautiful flowers.
- Rainbows to show God’s love and promise.
- My husband.
- My three giggly girls.
- Good movies.
- And I could go on and on. I am really not that hard to please and I don’t need expensive things to make my day.
Lights, Camera, Action!:
I wish I could remember to do more video. I love still shots more, though. So that is what I end up doing. I prefer to try to capture single moments.
I remember thinking that I would never give up my new 35mm with the various lenses that we spent a lot of money on. It was obsolete before our first daughter was one and I still hadn’t learned how to use many of the settings. We tried to find film for it a while back but the cost of the film combined with the cost of developing . . . well, it was cheaper to buy another camera!
We went digital with some gift money when our second daughter was born. That was a great little camera. Worked until we took it to the beach when our third daughter was one. Sand in the lens meant it wouldn’t focus or zoom. So, we got a second one.
Not long ago, we got a phone that had a camera in it. One that I actually trust to take pictures with.
We are behind the curve but we aren’t forsaking the new technology all together. Just waiting until it costs less than an arm and a leg.
