I know. So unlike me. But I’m talking about your photos.
There have been so many times where going through my phone, I would delete pictures to make space. I’m sure you do it, too. Eliminate most of those rapid-fire shots you took 80 of to get the right one.
If you have kids you know what I’m talking about 😉
We instinctively go through pictures and find smiles to save, because surely those are the moments of most joy and worth remembering. And then we delete the photos where we aren’t looking at the camera, it was slightly out of focus, somebody was in the middle of a sneeze, or the moment wasn’t what we were intending to capture.
But life is made of those in-between moments.
And when strung together, they somehow capture it better than those “look over here” smiles anyway.
Today, I’m thankful that I stopped myself from hitting that delete button on these guys. Sometimes we just move so fast and we are looking for “the shot.” I was moments away from deleting all of them…and then I stopped and hit the black and white button 😉
