I never take photographs, not even on trips. I do this for a lot of reasons. I find that if I'm taking pictures, I'm looking for angles, trying to get a good shot, I just don't enjoy the trip.
If you are enjoying the trip, you'll remember the mountain, the tilting narrow road, the lady in the 'Asstastic' t-shirt.
I don't take pictures of family and kids because people change and you shouldn't hold onto perceptions of them. I mean it's cute to see a picture of your niece when she's three but do you need a hundred different photos of that age? Not really. And their parents take photos, I don't need to.
I have a couple pictures of my dogs. Mostly taken by other people. :-)
It's not that I don't like artistic photos or cute photos, I'm just not interested in taking them. Have you ever seen someone's trip photos? A hundred pics of nothing in particular.
I love art photos when there's a story in the picture.
I like photos with lively color.
But regular ole snap it at the BBQ picture? I don't see the point. And I hate being in photos. Yet no one ever respects my right to refuse to be photoed. Most take it as a laughing challenge to take as many snaps of me as they can. THose people I usually don't speak to again.
When you ask someone politely not to do something and they take great pleasure in making you miserable, you should avoid those people. They have no respect for you.
I'm grumpy today.
Sorry the post doesn't have any humor. I'm just not feeling humorous.
