Poetic Winter – Passion

This weeks prompt had so many possibilities! But I decided to simply share some of my passions in life.

Anyone who knows me, knows that I always have a camera with me.  No matter what! It drives my family crazy, but I can’t help it. It’s who I am.

This little beauty belonged to my father in-law. I was sooooo excited when he asked me if I wanted it!  And I finally found someone who could work on them and had it cleaned up inside. But it still needs a part to get it working again. Hopefully someday soon!

I LOVE taking photos of my family! Unfortunately, this is what I normally see when our older boys see my camera’s out!  At least Taylor still loves to have his picture taken!

After the boys have all gone to bed, I love to curl up with a good book! On my Nook, I read at least 2 books a week. Trying to find books for my boys to read, I’ve discovered that I love young adult/teen fantasy books.  To be taken away to a place where the impossible happens helps me unwind at the end of a crazy day.  It’s not the only thing I read. I read quite a wide variety of books. But it is what I’ve been reading the most of the last couple of years.  =)

  5. I understand having a camera handy- always. lol. I have tried to lighten up in the last year, but it is definitely something that is a part of me too. I really LOVE these photos in the b&w. They are beautiful! So glad you are participating in our photo challenge!

  6. Haha! My older kids do the same thing when I pull out the camera. And like you, I always have my camera in tow. Well, two cameras. You know, just in case. 😉 lol Love your Minolta.
