We make still pictures because we recognize a particular instance is important or precious to us.
Not surprisingly, in many of the pictures I take, I often wish I were in them.
Wouldn’t you like to have picture of you bonding with your son or daughter?
Something spontaneous where you weren’t even aware of the presence of a camera?
I would love to be in these 2 pictures spending time with my son, but I can’t well set up the camera and pose.
It just wouldn’t be the same.
There is something priceless in these 2 moments yet it didn’t cost me anything to make.
I didn’t have to go far or use a lot of gear.
I just had to have my camera with me and be awake.
I suppose if I weren’t a father, I might not even notice such a moment happening before me.
What do you all think?
