Later, I showed the picture to my husband and he commented on what a good picture it was.
My kids had already commented, "Cool pic, Mom."
So, I was hooked. I thought that if my camera could take such good pics with no special effort on my part, it could certainly take exceptional pictures if I really tried and utilized all its wonderful features.
I was hooked.
And that's the day I snapped. And I snapped. And I snapped all day. And on every vacation. And on every walk the kids and I took. And on every average week day. And when we saw some beautiful bird in the yard. I snapped and snapped and snapped all the pictures I could and I was having a blast!
Then, I entered some of my favorite pics in the county fair.
And they all won awards!
So, I snapped more. And I took an online digital photography course (Thanks, Digital Photography School!). And I snapped more.
And, this hobby has grown, passed onto a few of my kids and become a real joy in my life.
That's what happened the day I snapped. I snapped pictures. And I had a blast. And I still am.
I now consider myself an award-winning amateur photographer. What fun!
Have you snapped lately?
