this weekend i celebrated two important life events:
my best friend turned the big 3-0, and said goodbye to her 20's
by throwing a roaring 20's party, and my brother & his wife
finally threw a party to celebrate their christmas wedding.
both festivities were equally lovely- family-filled and joyous,
but on both occasions i failed to bring out my camera and
capture just how wonderful they were on film.
and while it is disappointing that i don't have
much to show you in the way of pictures,
i must say that i am glad that i was
present for all of those special
moments i may have missed,
had i been busy checking
shutter speed and
depth of field.
are you a big picture-taker?
or would you rather live in the moment?
my situation reminded me of this scene from 2 days in paris.
