|Ella, Rob, and teacups through the lens of a disposable camera. Disneyland '08|
I hope my boys are thoughtful with their pictures. My friend Joanna got them disposable cameras for their birthday a few months ago. I haven't developed the film yet, but from what I saw, their photos aren't going to be anything profound. I think Oscar took five pictures of his hand without a flash in a restaurant, followed by one of Owen's eye with the flash on. Brilliant. I tried to explain how it works, but whatever. That's what he thought was picture worthy. The potential for something great is within these cameras, so I'm going for it again. Profound or lame, if I ever develop the film, I'll post the pictures here.
As for me, I'll take photographer Keith Pitts suggestion and make sure I start the night before. I always forget to take pictures of Santa’s cookies, my children sleeping, and the stockings hanging. Taking those three pictures would add so much to the story of the holiday. I'll have to see how the night goes, but I hope I can muster up the energy to capture it right. Mainly because this could be the last year all my kids are believers. Ella is in 2nd grade. This is the end, right?
