This Easter holiday I made a conscious decision to put the camera down.
Something this blogger finds very hard to do.
You want to photograph everything; snap every little moment to make sure you capture the magic for future years.
And then share it.
But there problem with that is, sometimes you’re spending so much time behind the camera that you miss out on actually being there. I mean really THERE.
So I put the camera down. Sure I’ve taken a few photos, but nowhere near as many as I normally would. And most of those have been quick snaps on my phone.
And it’s been wonderful. We’ve just hung out for pretty much two weeks. Visited friends, hunted for eggs, decorated eggs, visited family, hunted for more eggs.
But by far the most regular thing we’ve done over the holidays is walk. Lots and lots of walking. Which means lots of lots of talking and catching up and chewing the fat.
It’s fabulous to capture those magical family moments – I’m a huge advocate of that – but sometimes you need to switch off, switch on to the humans around you and just make those magical family moments.
