…to be wonderful.
Ever since I took a photography class in college, I’ve been obsessed. I love my digital SLR and I still love my 35mm for taking black and white photos (even though I don’t use it as often as I should).
I’m always trying to get the perfect photo. The perfect angle. The perfect lighting. I want it just right.
This pin helped remind me that being perfect isn’t the point.
The point is the memories behind the photo.
I made a layout inspired by this quote, using a photo that’s not quite perfect:
This is one of the only photos Abby has with her grandpa from this Twins game. He was 85 in this photo and had been a Twins fan forever. This was his very first trip to the Metrodome to see them play. It’s a little blurry and Abby’s eyes are closed, but who cares? It’s a photo at the Twins game with her grandpa and she’ll remember that day forever.
So maybe went on a family trip and the only group shot is blurry, or someone is sticking out his or her tongue (that’s all I did in third grade, drove my dad crazy!), or it rained, or something happened and it wasn’t the Kodak moment you hoped for.
It’s not the end of the world.

On a completely unrelated note (kinda)…
