What's not important...Facebook.
I have more friends hidden than visible-
How much simpler life would be if I was "friends" with actual friends?
Cranking down the accessibility of ye olde time suck. Really gotta get some apps so I'm not signing in just b/c I'm bored.
Any suggestions for apps? Games? Recipe apps?
What's not important...making money to do so.
I've found myself comparing my pictures to so many other, better photographers out there. It's tough. It seems like everybody with a camera is a photographer these days. That exact statement hurt my feelings not too long ago, but it's true. If my style appeals to someone and they wish to give me money to document their lives, I consider myself lucky. I will gladly do it. But at the same time, I can't compare. There will always be someone(a lot of someones, actually) better than me and that's okay.
I bought a camera to document our lives. That's it. I like pictures. I like memories. I like the challenging aspect of making and taking pictures, but in the end, it's just another hobby. Another time consuming thing.
It's been a very Lamentations kinda day. Everything is for nothing, it seems. Everywhere I look, the world is going to hell.

Same spot, different kid.
Friday, we woke up to the sound of rain. Glorious rain.
This deer is the friendliest. She has some fon-kay teeth, but it almost looks like she's smiling. Added to her charm.
After the fun of feeding the animals a whole bag of carrots, I pictured my children grateful and willing to pose for pictures.
Not quite and here's why...
Tanks and helicopters vs pictures with mom...yeah.
Good times, this ordinary life.
Cherishing every moment of it and realizing just what's important.
