A little bit of this and, a little bit of that, makes a little bit of me.

Zooming By


Life is…I started to make a WTF aka Why-The-Heck-Not list. Things I want to do before I’m 60. But, I’m slow. So slow…it will take me forever to get anything done!

The list has since been scrapped after constant distraction.

I don’t text or chat on the cell phone. Rare, maybe. So, what’s my struggle? The “I” word named The Internet. Mainly toggling among Ravelry, Facebook, and WordPress.  It’s difficult for me to put down and take in the moment.  Is it why my memory a slippery slope?

Thank goodness for my blog and photographs. I may not remember a thing!

I don’t leave home without my Nikon around my neck, even to grocery shopping LOL. Doesn’t it take away my focus in the moment? In life? Quite the opposite. I see things, details, colors, shapes, textures, lines…I miss otherwise…like this remarkable art piece in a neighborhood park.

Call me weird. With a camera on the palm of my hand, I am quite observant. My memory improves. I can re-live those special moments, looking through photographs. How about you? Do you enjoy seeing things through a camera lens or a photograph blog?

Happy crafting and keep those creative juices running!

  1. Camera View – it comes in circles, I think. After about 50 years I found that my eyes were constantly looking for that perfect angle, for the extraordinary item, for the little things one usually passes by – and once the photo was made it was on to the next “camera viewing angle”. You might observe this in most people who take pictures – after the image is in the camera, they turn away and walk off, not spending another second on the item they just admired enough to take a picture. Funny, really! So for about 10 years to train my camera view eye to SEE everything and KEEP what I see in MY MEMORY for as long as I can, I made very few pictures and instead tried to just visually soak up a 365° total view and think of those impressions time and again.
    I had kept on seeing the world around me through a view finder and now I am much more liberated again in taking in that overall view. And now I started taking pictures again! But once done, I don’t walk away but instead try to commit the view to my memory as well.
    Thank you, dear Sarah, for bringing up yet another interesting focus on life.
