The One Taking The Photograph

 Daily Prompt : Tables Turned

Are you as comfortable in front of a camera as behind one? Being written about, as well as writing?

The answer for the first is a definite no! I love taking photographs but not being  the subject of a photograph.

I take hundreds of photos at parties, get-togethers or when on holiday but I’ll only be there in five or six of them.  I take photos because I like to capture a moment, in a way I’m freezing it forever. This probably started because I had to move around so much and everything in life kept changing so photographs became the means to remember.

I probably should also mention the fact the I was always a little crazy when it came to photographs(emphasis on crazy). My parents tell me that when I was a toddler I had a habit of waking up at three in the morning. I would then wake my parents up and ask them to bring all the albums and will go through the photographs and ask what was going on when each photograph was taken. My parents lost a lot of sleep that way. This went on for almost a year till they had enough of it and made me get rid of that habit.

As for writing, I’ve mentioned it a lot of times already but once again – I like to write .
No one has ever written about me and I don’t think anyone will find much to write anyway. Though if someone does write I wouldn’t have a problem with that(as long as whatever is written doesn’t have a photograph of me attached to it).

    Same here but I am not a good writer and I think that is why I love photography so much. Sometimes no words are necessary. Great post and thanks for sharing G. 😀

    • No way! I love reading what you write. You are good at both. 🙂

        No way you say! Well, then I am glad to hear that G! Wish I thought the same but I do admire bloggers like you that know how to write as you do it so good. 😀

      • Thanks for saying I’m good.I know I’m still learning, got a long way to go before I can call myself a writer. 🙂

        Well, I think you’re a good one. I can only type a short paragraph or two and then I forget what I wanted to say and then I stop. LOL! You keep going at what you do. Practice makes perfect. In my case it’s : “Forget to remember” LOL!
