Listen to Your Heart

Now and then I've had the impulse to take a photo, but have cast aside the notion, for being too busy or too tired to get up and get the camera.
I have had some serious regrets and have since learned to grab my camera and snap away, even if I feel foolish at times, for zooming in on the fruit and vegetables at the grocery store. I don't regret taking pictures; I regret missing great photo opts.
So, I hauled my camera along when we took a little cruise in the 1950 Chevy for a sip of hot cocoa and garage sales. Buzz and two other toys cost $1.00 total, "Score." Garrett was thrilled.
Remember this dam? I showed pictures my daughter Victoria had taken here about a month ago. Somebody decided it had to go. An evil bull dozer and wicked dump trucks lined our country back roads that mournful day. Loud explosions could be heard. It's gone... It's gone! This lovely place we used to come is all gone.
I'm so sad. I know I will get over it. I am heavy-hearted over this little private fairy world that is now gone. It's a lump, a pile of broken hunks of cement. The ancient moss... the water fall... gone gone. Somber, sorrowful day.  I regret that I did not bring my sister Sharon here for photos three weeks ago. She would have loved it. As sorrowful as I am I hold out hope for my heavenly home where beauty far exceeds anything we know here.

Blessings, Kathi

I used to be the same way about photographing things as you did Kathi, but realized I was missing a lot of simple pleasures, now my camera is always out.
I am glad you got some photos of one of your favorite places.How sad about having it taken down too.

Hope your summer has been great, I know if you are like me, it has been very busy.
So glad to be back on-line and to be able to visit.
Enjoy your day.

I often have the same feelings about taking pictures and think I miss some good photos.
I love that picture of Garrett next to the truck. I can imagine what a fun time you had going to garage sales together and now you will be able to revisit that wonderful day by looking at your pictures.
What a shame about that beautiful dam. It looks like such a nice place to visit.

Kathi,
I don't know how you found my blog, but I'm sure glad that you did :)
Now, I can follow and read your super cute blog!
I agree with you about the camera. I've learned my lesson the hard way, and try to always grab it as I head out the door.
Hope you have the best day !

I take pictures of everything! I hate that feeling of regret when I don't take pictures or even worse, I forget my camera or the battery dies! I'm glad you are being braver and taking more pictures. I wanted to tell you that you should have Harrison clean up his room and take a bunch of pictures of him sitting in there from different angles to remember his room. I did this with Mackenzie and Cameron before they moved out and they now have great memories of their rooms. I am planning on doing it also for Gray when he moves out in a couple of weeks.

I love you!
Sharon

P.S. Do you think you can come visit me soon?
