My dslr thinks I have abandoned her.
That fancy new phone with her ease, convenience, slimness waltzed into my life and began snapping shots where she normally would.Moments more readily captured because miss phone was already there, handy, no fiddling of the ISO or aperture or shutter, just a gentle tap of a finger and the shot was had.
I have missed you, my dslr. You will forever be my first love.
I promise you. You will be the ONE when it is of the utmost importance to remember moments from our life.
Like this one.
When Drummer got to use his very practiced chubby hand wave. Over. And over.
Or when living with a household of girls is represented unaware on a belt worn to work, standing in front of a classroom full of adults. We all got a giggle out of that one.
Many family portraits have come through your lens, with many more to follow. I will always be true to you.
This last shot makes my heart swell with love, pride, joy, and gratitude for this country, for those who honorably and bravely serve to keep it and others safe, and for their families who sacrifice having them home. Thank you.
