Oh, hey! I’m back with a 10 on 10 post this month. As per usual, the 10th snuck up on me. When the reminder from the group popped up on Facebook, I was in the car on the way to our local (and kick ass!) amusement park, Canada’s Wonderland. No fancy camera? No matter. We had a fun day ahead and I had my iPhone. I replied, “I’m in!” and went about capturing our day.
I have to say that it felt refreshing. I would never have documented our day to this extent if the 10 on 10 hadn’t been happening. There’s no way I would have brought my “good” camera to the park as the plan was to spend the entire day on big coasters. I may have taken a shot or two with the iPhone but would have promptly left it to languish on my phone’s hard drive. Without having to worry about the safety of expensive gear, and not having to fuss with camera settings, I was able to click and move on to the next cool adventure without stressing. I’m starting to see the value of “lower quality photos”. They may not be perfectly in focus, or artsy, or drool worthy…but they sure do a good job of reminding you that it’s about the moments.
p.s. Don’t forget to head over to see what Catherine Giroux captured for June!
