I have always loved photography…ever since Denise (my best friend from childhood) and I saved our allowances (fifty cents/week – we were probably about 10 years old) to buy our Kodak Instamatic 104 cameras…at the time, they were amazing; drop-in film cartridge and pop-on flash cube…so easy, so cool!
I went on to take several photography classes in high school, followed by a couple more in college. With a good 30+ years of practice, one might think I would have a pretty good command of the features on my camera (like the timer) but the digital world still baffles me.
I like the spontaneity and the hug about to begin much better than a posed shot. It’s wonderful. Like Keats Ode to a Grecian Urn, the hug will forever be about to happen.
