Digital photography has changed the way I catalog memories. Before, I thought carefully about how I used my film, waited too long to develop the film into photographs, and often became disappointed with the outcome. Now I snap away: a photo here of a broken mailbox that might be good fodder for a story; five or six photos here to capture the frozen branches (I can delete the ones I don’t like;) photos of friends, photos of food, photos of whatever. Today my week’s photos remind me of many simple things that bring me joy. Here are a few in no particular order, along with a few photos:

[icon name=”balance-scale” class=”” unprefixed_class=””] Reuniting with old friends. This is my friend Judy. We met in 8th grade. She was my maid of honor when I got married at 19. She remained my friend. Now she is Dr. Judith Write, traveling the world with her inspiration and leadership. Now she is still my friend.
[icon name=”balance-scale” class=”” unprefixed_class=””] An art class with CoCo. We had such fun together. She making a Mother’s Day Present for me and me making a Mother’s Day gift for…. I better keep that part a secret.
[icon name=”balance-scale” class=”” unprefixed_class=””] A new tool for making omelets in the microwave. Hmm… It does look a little funky, but sure did taste good. Four minutes in the microwave and a rinse-out clean up. Thanks for the tip, Mom.
[icon name=”balance-scale” class=”” unprefixed_class=””] Dinner with my friends from Adello and breakfast with my brother, sister-in-law, nephew, and his fiancé. Boo! The photos were too grainy to share.

Do you take more photos now than when you used film? A digital camera or a cell-phone camera sure makes capturing memories easy, doesn’t it? [tweetthis]What are some of the silly things you photograph that you never thought you would? [/tweetthis]
I know I never thought I’d photograph my spice drawers or my breakfast!
