I was having a hard time coming up with a topic tonight, so I asked Plinky to help me out. Like always, Plinky was more than willing to oblige. Of all the questions to answer, the one that caught my eye was about my favorite thing to photograph. I couldn’t narrow it down to just one thing so, in no particular order, here are my Top 3.
1. My Cat – I know, I know, you’ve seen him a million times already, but seriously, who can resist this adorable ball of fluff? The best part is that he has the personality to match. He is so sweet and loving, he doesn’t have any cattitude at all. He’s not moody or grumpy. He doesn’t hiss or growl. He spends his days sleeping, purring sweetly and asking politely (HA!) for his 2-course breakfast. What can I say? The camera loves him. I’m kinda fond of him, too.
2. My Family – This, of course, includes all members of my family. You may have noticed from past posts that there are very few photos of my husband and lots of the kids. This is due to the fact that my kids are so much easier to photograph. They are almost always willing to give me a smile or a funny face. Even when they are tired and grumpy, with three of them, at least one of them will cooperate. Rob on the other hand, is a totally different story. From time to time he will pose for me, but he is usually muttering something under his breath while giving me his “Are we done yet?” smile. I try not to torture him too often, so there are not nearly as many pictures of him as I would like for there to be. Kids on the other hand…
3. Pretty Scenery – Mountains and rivers and canyons and lakes, I just can’t get enough of them. Pictures of scenery are my way of going back to beautiful places long after we have returned home. Of course, looking at old pictures always makes me wish we were still there. Camping in the mountains. Fishing the river. Fixing a flat tire on a dirt road in the middle of nowhere. Going for drives and exploring new areas are among my favorite things to do. Taking pictures of the beautiful scenery is my way of bringing a piece of it home with me.
