I’m trying to become comfortable with having my camera with me at ALL times. It really is not easy. There are times when I want to take a shot and I feel uncomfortable by the stares I’m sure to get from bystanders. There are times when I see a shot I really want to capture between my boys and it just is not convenient — while cooking dinner, for example (with hot oil)! Then there are moments when I want to experiment and take shots of very insignificant things but don’t want to be bombarded with questions from my curious children and husband.  But I’m trying to overcome these obstacles.  I know that these images may not WOW you and they may possibly bore you; however, I need to document my efforts so I have a “baseline” to refer to when I’m discouraged or when I feel accomplished.
