I answered simply. Because it’s fun. Or something along those lines. But then the more I thought about it, the more I realized it is just because of this ‘tween-ness.’ Because I am suddenly realizing how fast it is all going. How if you are walking the dog, and you aren’t thinking with a camera in mind, you walk right by the picture above. Just some leaves on the grass really but the light was falling at just the right angle and the orange was so orange and the green was so green.
I am often torn between learning how to use my ‘real’ camera and just accepting the fact that for me, a forgetful soul, the iPhone camera is the greatest invention ever. I always have my phone with me or else I break in to hives (a post for a another day) so I always, always have a camera. And with that, I have become someone who pays attention, someone who notices. And for that, I am grateful.
