Taking a minute from the camera

May 19, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

It's a beautiful, sunny, Saturday in Seattle and I am taking a minute from the camera. Even though you don't get many days like this here and I should be snapping away, I am just taking a minute for me - and my daughter, and my family. My daughter is napping on my lap as I type this (a little more difficult than usual but it works). Just a reminder that we all need time to slow down. I have been so busy (and blessed) with editing lately that I have not given my family much time. My mum was admitted into hospital over night for about her 6th time within about 9 months - and is undergoing blood transfusions as I type. She is in Australia and I am in Seattle - nothing is worse than being away from her at the moment. I have been there as often as I can and wish I could be there now. She is suffering with cancer and I know many people out there are too - and their families with them. So, today, I'm taking a minute from my camera and instead of loving life through the shutter and lens I am loving life from the other side. Treasuring the moments and enjoying them fully rather than through the camera.. and hope that I remember them as I won't have the pictures of them! :) Nothing really is more important than the here and now and treasuring each minute and moment that we do have. I wish I could be there for my mum but I need to be here for my daughter too. I'll be back at shooting tomorrow but for now, I am living life for which we all take for granted too often. Let's all take a moment...
