Before I met Christopher, he was really into photography. Not digital photography, but the old fashioned film developing kind of photography (a slowly dying, if not completely dead art, for sure). Over the past couple of years, I've kinda knocked him and his lens out of the way, with my big camera hogging butt. I'm not proud of this, I'm actually quite ashamed. His hobby became mine, though not with film, I prefer digital. I honestly didn't mean to take over, its just something that eventually happened.
Recently, I've been handing him the camera (I have project 365's set up for both of the kids, and sometimes I just can't keep up), and asked him to take some pictures. When I come home from doing whatever it is that I've been out doing, he greets me at the door, eager to show me the shots that hes snapped while I was away. I'm not as excited for his pictures as I am for my own, not because they're not good- they are, just because I'm not the one that took them. So while they don't hold quite as much meaning to me, because I wasn't there, during the editing process (I'm still the one behind the mouse when it comes to that part), I have noticed that hes gotten quite a bit better at capturing the moment (blurry pictures of electronics from 5 years ago just weren't anything to gawk at), his photos are beautiful, and I wanted to share a few of his recent frames with you...
I'd like to toss in a semi public apology.
I'm sorry Christopher, for stealing your hobby. Your pictures are wonderful. I love you.
