You and That Camera

Like most, if not all, of you I hardly ever leave the house without my little camera. Mine's little and doesn't take wonderful pictures like some but it does sometimes capture what I want it to.

Today I was talking to one of my neighbors. I told her there were some Wood Ducks on the creek but I hadn't been able to capture them. "You and that camera!" she said.

One person asked me one time as I walked Rascal "What are you going to do with that camera?"
Maybe he had a guilty conscience.

I got to thinking about a couple things -

#1 - Did you ever realize how much you can say with the word that? That dog! That camera! That woman! That look on your face! Are you wearing that?

#2 - I just love my little camera. I'd have a hard time expressing myself without it. Most of my posts, as are yours, are written around a picture. It's the tool for my art, communication, joy, and proof that I saw something. Now THAT'S great! Diane

Diane, that camera is a part of you, I love your photos and I just love it when you share them. I have so many posts to catch up on, I am glad to be home!!!
I missed you dear sweet friend, it was so good to come home and know that I had friends happy to see that I came back......hopefully looking relaxed and ready to face the world!
(maybe not the best picture, next to my slim and beautiful stepdaughter) LOL but she was the most gorgeous bride, who can be envious of that?

Your camera takes wonderful pictures Diane and without it we wouldn't see a lot of the things you love.
Cameras tell a lot about a person and also captures memories that one day we may forget.
If you are like me, that perfect shot that could have been is the day you forget to put the camera in your purse or pocket.

Hi Diane!

I found your blog through a new blog you just visited at Sares! I am a pom lover too with two poms and a chihuahua. You can see Sadie Mae if you scroll down on my sidebar, she is fast asleep.
I am Jacqueline from Once Upon a Fairyland which was my childhood home. I'm ranting and raving today...I never do that. I'm normally sweet as sugar and happy as a bee stuck in honey. Please come on over for a visit. I love dogs, dolls, fairytales, creative writing, crafts and vintage thrifting, pen pals and reading. Love to get to know you!
