With todayís technology, we are never short of a camera anytime anywhere. We can just take out our smart phones and snap away at every moment possible. Some people think that taking photos is a great way to capture the moment and enjoy the photos in the future. However, some people think that being in the moment is the best way to capture the moment in memory. What do you think?
yes, especially now that we have kids. I'm sadly finding that babies grow up all too fast, and for me, it's really important to capture these special moments and memories. I try to find a balance between enjoying special times with my kids, and constantly being their photographer. Sometimes, the best moments can't be captured, and you just have to enjoy it for what it is. In addition to photos, I also write down some of the funny things my toddler says. He's three now and at an age where he comes out with just the funniest things, and I know over time I will forget all these unique personality soundbites. To capture these, I keep a little journal. I will do the same when my 6 month old starts talking.
Sure I do. As you said, with smartphones so prevalent we've always got a camera to hand. In fact, having a good camera is a feature I put a lot of time into researching when looking for a new phone these days - it's always on hand to
capture memories. With small kids I snap away on the iPhone often.
Yes, 1 should savour the moment in my memory I feel, but iíve ALWAYS taken a camera with me every time Iíve left the house, just in case I see some lovely patterns in the form of architecture, that I can use for ideas for the odd collage cards I make. When Iím walking with my mother she seems to get a bit frustrated that Iím always pulling out a camera. I back-packed around Bali for 3 weeks in from early Jan Ď95 with my then much younger daughters, & a g/f with her 16 year son. I was AWAYS taking photos. She didnít have a camera, & said she likes keeping it all in her memory. (And I still think she doesnít own a camera!)
