I’m joining in with Clan Donaldson’s Theme Thursday this week. I’d like to say a big thank-you to Cari for hosting this link-up. It’s nice to have an excuse to post about photography, since it is something that used to be a hobby of mine. Years ago, when I lived in Chicago, I turned my bedroom into a darkroom and slept on the couch in my living room. It used to take me two hours to get across town to Calumet Photo on the El. There, I would buy a few rolls of black and white film so I could spend my day taking photos of beautiful Chicago architecture. In the evening I would end up with Sean at the Empty Bottle watching bands and taking more photos.
It was a very romantic, carefree time in my life, and I was very happy.
However, I wouldn’t go back there for the world.
Today, I have two subjects who are far more beautiful than anything Chicago has to offer. I was lucky enough to catch them in their cutie hats last weekend before we all went out to play in the snow. They remind me that as nice as it is to be carefree, it’s immeasurably better to have something to care for.
