i like pretty pictures

Before I had the strokes I loved to take pictures.

I saw THINGS with the  eye of what it would look like in a frame.

But at my core, I loved to shoot pictures of people.

I would follow people, catch the not-typical photo and capture this GLIMPSE into their soul.

I loved pictures.

I DO love pictures.

I know there are pictures on Twitter and Facebook.

But for someone who had the joy of photography taken away, the ability to lose myself in the craft of others is enthralling.

Thank you, G+ and Pinterest, for making it simple and easy to  bask in their talented light.

    I love pictures as well. Taking them, looking at them and especially going through old ones and reminiscing. There is an art to great photography but also there is something to be said for being able to appreciate photos. I don’t take as many pictures as I used to and I certainly don’t share them like I once did. Maybe that should be a New Year’s Resolution, take more pictures and get back into enjoying the simplicity that is all around us.

    You bring up a point that I shared with my eye doctor recently. Vision is so important and the ability to read, see things around us or do everyday things that we don’t even think of until we can’t is something I would never want to lose. My family has quite a bit of macular degeneration and my eyesight has already had a fair share of issues.

    When your stroke happened, it really opened my eyes to how things could suddenly change for anyone at anytime. There isn’t a cut off point to how much any one family could face. We know that.

    I think of you very often and hope that each day brings you at least a fraction of the joy and laughter that you bring to others.

    Love, Tracy

    Nothing can tell a story quite like a picture can. I especially like the one of the grocery store aisle. It really makes me feel all zoomy.
