This evening I was happily enjoying some time with friends when suddenly I realized I hadn’t taken a single picture the entire day.
The entire day. Not one.
Now this may not seem significant to most people but to those of us who have embarked on the Project 365, this is serious stuff. Although I’m not sure what would happen, there are rumors, whispered among bloggers, of things such as these:
1. Self-destructing cameras
2. Visits from the Feds
3. The Project 365 icon forcibly removed from the blog
4. The mockery and derision of people everywhere
5. All of the above plus more
I shudder at the thought.
Thankfully I have five children ALL of whom love to traipse about the countryside (or even the suburbs) with my digital camera in tow, sure that they are expert photographers. Today I handed the camera into Rachel’s willing hands. She took several cute pictures of David and Sarah playing on the swings with our visiting friends, but the first 13 shots were all self-portraits.
Aren’t digital cameras wonderful. No wasted film. No money spent developing blurry pictures. No annoying double prints of pictures no one wants. Plenty of opportunities for shots like this.
Or even better, something like this:
Yep, the project is saved. We have pictures. All is well with the world. Thank you, Rachel, for taking care of things for me. Keep practicing those smiles. Can you do vaguely annoyed and disgusted?
I think she’s got it.
