Just this week I clicked on a Facebook link that took me to Tami Koenig’s “Your Story Coach” blog and the “7 Photo Memories to Capture Now” and I had an “Aha, I should be doing this moment!”
Actually, to be honest, I had an “Aha, I should have already been doing this moment.”
Quite some time back, I attended a scrapbooking workshop, and the instructor advised us to take photos of the inside of our home.
Take photos, she suggested, of each part of each room, including the wall hangings, the way the furniture is arranged, and, well, just everything, including one thing I never would have dreamed of doing, the views out each window, because as Tami Koenig reminds us in her blog post above, things change.
And sometimes, things change unexpectedly, such as when an earthquake occurs, a tornado hits, a flood damages, or a fire destroys.
So, the best time, as Tami says, to take those photos, is now, today.
And many years ago, when I first heard that instructor’s advice to take a photo of the view out each window, it was already too late. A house fire had destroyed the home that I grew up in, and that window of opportunity was already gone!
For more ideas on other photos you might want to capture now, tuck a camera in your purse, read Tami’s “7 Photo Memories to Capture Now” blog post, and head out the door.
