I love to take pictures, always have, always will. I remember my first real camera. A Kodak Pocket Instamatic 110. Remember those?? The film was the long skinny cartridge that fit into the back of the camera. I was my favorite gift of my 10th birthday. It seemed like once a week my parents were dropping my film off to have it developed.
Since then I've had quite a few cameras, and have taken thousands of pictures. About 6 years ago I went digital, after quite a resistance though. I still wanted to take my film, drop it off, and get that wonderful envelope full of photos handed back to me. The best thing about being totally digi now, is that I can take as many photos as I want, but only print the ones I totally love. Which brings me to the photo up there.
I took this photo 2 years ago. Tucker was 4 years old. While I was chatting with a friend, he concocted his own Lemonade Stand, on a table in the family room. In these 2 short years, I had totally forgetten about his little Lemonade Stand, until this morning when I was browsing though some photos from 2005. This is why I love taking pictures, to remind me of those childhood memories, that I don't ever want to forget.
