It feels selfish to say it but from now on, I just want to go to events rather than record them. That’s not to say I won’t take photos but if I do it’ll be a spontaneous capture-the-moment moment.
It’s not to say I’m not flattered when asked – you must like my photos or why ask me… so, thank you.
Tonight was a case in point. My brother’s exhibition – which was great by the way – but I just wanted to be there, and not as official photographer. To be fair, there was no pressure and yes I did take one or two pics… but tonight I handed my camera to my 9-year-old and let her loose.
I thought she did okay. Lots of pictures of the pictures which wasn’t really the point but also some great shots of the people and from a different perspective. And I got to enjoy the event.
