I'm finding it was such a great decision to have a quiet Monday. Sometimes the busyness just takes over and I get to the point of feeling frustrated that I'm not getting other things done that are important to me. Plus, I was asked to keep a sweet almost 1-yr-old for the day. How could I pass that up? My kids are grown - all 3 are in their 20's now - so I am at that place between raising kids and one day having grandchildren. So this little girl is kind of like my trial run at being a grandmother. And she is also a subject in many of my photos. I have so much fun taking her picture!
Very soon I am taking a trip. The first thing I did when beginning to plan for this trip was to start thinking of what I needed to pack for my photography. I can find a need for every lens that I own - but know there is just no way that everything can be taken. I am one that always seems to need whatever I DIDN'T bring when I am away from home - whether it is photography, shoes, or anything else! But I'm just trying to make sure that all of the bases are covered in what I could need on this trip. Of course, after I get through choosing the lenses, then I have to settle on a bag! Ugh... choices are just not always a great thing for me!
