Turns out I just hadn't found my "drug" yet.
Hi, my name is Shannon. and I am an photo-a-holic.
I take over 6000 photos in a matter of weeks, and that does not include those I take on my phone.
I have an uncontrollable urge to take a picture that over comes me when I see something cute or beautiful. And since I have three adorable kids (if I do say so myself) that is about, oh, every 3 seconds.
I often find myself in odd positions... on the floor, standing on chairs, leaning over furniture.... just to get "that shot".
And it seems that I have this subconscious fear that if I don't get it on film, then it never really happened. That smile, the blue water, swinging at the play ground, my kids playing together... I have to capture it to make it real, or so my photo-crazed brain has trained itself to think.
Oh ya, and I am not a professional photographer. If I was, none of this would be odd or unnatural. No, I am a just an insane momarazzi.
And thanks to Instragram finally making its app available to Android users... well... I have no hope of breaking my addiction any time soon. It could be worse, right?
|I am @shannonblaeske if you want to follow my pics. Warning... I post frequently and may take over your page.|
I have been researching for an upcoming post that is very dear to my heart. Which, along with photo-a-holic, I could add in there facebook- blogger- reading- researching- advocating-a-holic as well. What happened to my mantra everything in moderation ? But thats for another day. Check back soon for my next post- its much more important then just awesome pictures of my kids.
