I have always driven my family crazy taking pictures. I admit I can be a little obsessive.
For some reason, I feel the need to capture the moment so I can re-live it. Maybe I'm afraid I'll forget.
God has impressed upon me several times that by trying to capture the moment, I end up missing it, so I'm learning to just enjoy.
But, with all of that said, this picture represents why I love photography. It's a memory. I'm sure I would have forgotten this day if it hadn't been captured by someone.
This is me and my two sisters back in the early 70's, with a baby donkey that was born on our little farm.
