Undoukai Update, About Those Pictures
I took 300 pictures today at my daughter's Undoukai (a preschool sports day), and about 30 minutes of video. I dumped all the pictures in the computer, but I don't want to think about them now. Well, I looked, and there's some good ones.
At one point today I felt like a professional photographer. I thought, "I'd better stop and cheer, and be a dad. You see the world differently through a camera, or with a camera in your hand. Some of my best memories have come from walking into totally amazing events with no way to "capture" the moment.
Tonight I came home and read this. What a great post from a fellow dad. I could go on and on, but why type more words when his are still hanging in the air? Go check it out.
I'll work on these pictures soon and start posting them in some sort of order. Then I'm going to make a video/slide show and burn it on a DVD for my parents (and us). I wish I could share that here. Anyway, tomorrow we're going to Hanno for a BBQ, and I'm leaving the camera at home. I'm bringing the video camera though.Posted by jw at October 17, 2004 12:50 AM
