Have you ever said "gosh I wish I had my camera!"
It's nice to have it with you but sometimes, when you're balancing 5 dozen cupcakes and 2 gallons of juice for your daughters' classroom party, there's just no room for it. Then the party gets started and oh! the kids are so cute!
Sometimes, when you have a special date with a special someone, the camera strap just doesn't go with your outfit, and that big black camera would never fit in your cute tiny purse! But you have to somehow capture this magic moment!
Your DSLR might not be with you but I bet your phone is.
It's been said that the best camera you have is the one that is with you.
My shot happened because I was going out for a walk on a sunny afternoon with a 5 year old, a 1 year old in a stroller and a dog on a leash. The DSLR was not even a consideration, I had enough going on. But I did put my phone in my pocket. Then, as we were out, the 5 year old found some dandelions. She was so excited about them and raced to find another, and another, and to blow those feathery things into the breeze and make wishes. She was joyful and exuberant! Oh! I had to get a shot of her enthusiasm! Out came the phone. click.click.click.
I'm so glad I have this little slice of an amazing moment in my life.
Have you used the camera on your phone to get a "must have" shot? Or, do you use it all the time, capturing fun everyday shots! Or, have you never even used the camera on your phone?
I encourage you to give it a try! Shoot something with the camera on your phone!
Tell us about it! Share a little slice of amazing with us!
