On Saturday, I went to my brother and sister in law‘s house. As I was getting ready to go, I picked up my camera. I had no specific reason to bring it, but I knew that the light in their living room is great for photos. I thought maybe I’d get a photo like this one of my little girl.
A little later, I saw this moment between cousins unfolding, and I was happy to have my camera nearby.
I started bringing my camera with me routinely when I was posting a photo on Flickr every day last year (my 365 Project). I learned that bringing just my camera with a 50mm lens is pretty easy. (The 50 mm is a small lens.) And even though I didn’t always strike gold when I took the trouble of bringing my camera along, I never got any great photos when I left it at home.
So, try it: bring your camera. You may come home with nothing, but you might come home with a treasure.
