Day 165 - Friday 13th June (Argh!!!)

“You miss 100% of the shots you never take.” - Wayne Gretzky (b. 1961), retired professional ice hockey player

Interesting quote for us?! Motto : just keep clicking away, lol

It amazes me, since I got my Canon DSLR, how much I view my surroundings so differently. I look at landscapes and wonder what they would look like if photographed them. Or sometimes Zoë will do something and I wish I could capture that moment on my camera. The problem is my DSLR is big and heavy to carry around and so I often miss things that I would like to have captured. My little point and shoot camera is about 3 years old now and is rubbish in comparison to my other camera so I tend not to take that with me either.
James captured this photo whilst I was trying to catch 40 winks on holiday. I had got onto Zoë’s bed in the hope for some peace and quiet. She spent the whole time bouncing on our bed. I didn’t realise he had taken the photo until I downloaded the photos later.

Brilliant shot! We should always take cameras with us, an extension of ourself?

Husbands always catch us unawares don't they :)

great shot but doesn't look too comfortable a position to fall asleep in.

Good photo even though it has caught you unaware :)
I still don't have my camera with me sometimes, when will I learn?
