Still Having Fun?
July 11, 2011 § 6 Comments
I saw a guy riding his bike through the park the other day and I mentioned to my son how when I was young I would see how far I could ride with no hands. If I got on a bike today, I’d look like I was riding through a major earthquake! I started to think about how my idea of “fun” has changed. I played baseball everyday during the summer, played football until the big snows hit, and then went sled riding and had snowball fights throughout the rest of the winter. Now my idea of fun is eating at a nice restaurant, watching a movie, and having a lite beer with my meal…stop me, I’m out of control! I’ve always loved shooting images of kids doing things…anything, they have fun doing all kinds of things…kinda like me a long time ago. I looked through my files and gathered up a number of images that span from 2009 when I helped coach my son’s baseball teams right up to a few weeks ago when I photographed some kids playing around in the water at our local park. With paying bills, trying to get back into shape, and attempting to drum up more clients for my photography business, it seems I have no time left for the fun things in life. Well that’s changing as of today. I plan on making time in my life for fun things…I’m going to oil up my baseball glove, and maybe have a “regular” beer with my dinner tonight…can’t rush into these things you know, I don’t want to hurt myself!
I really miss the innocence of youth…time to try and get some of it back…how about you?
