The Little Things: 2018-4

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:

Made with Sistema microwave soup dish.

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!
