so, my family would probably say my camera is attached to my hand and in their faces almost 24/7. Which is actually not true. NOT TRUE. And honestly, there are times when I head out the door with the two small boys and all the gear that that entails and I think - "ooh! I should bring my camera... but where would I even stash it? And do I really want to carry one more thing?" and the camera gets left behind. Or I am in the middle of doing something awesome- and I decide to just go ahead and enjoy the moment, rather than dashing for my camera and trying to grab a shot that captures all the awesome. Or Keaton goes camera shy and tells me not to photograph him. Or Ollie stops doing his self-invented chicken dance by the time I get my camera in hand... And I am left with a fabulous memory in my brain- but nothing to print out and pop in Project Life. (now, I know nearly all the world has an iphone, and this is probably less of an issue...but my guess is even those folks encounter this missing a shot at some point...)
And so I bring you "this is a photo I didn't take" (as inspired in part by this blog I came across several years ago) A collection of cards for those moments when you didn't get the photo you wanted- whatever the reason. Fill in the journaling card with the story of the photo you wish you'd captured. I love having these cards in my stash, knowing that even when I won't have a photo for that 4x6 pocket- I can still capture the picture I have in my mind... what I wish I could have photographed.
Would love to see if you use these in your Project Life - or elsewhere!
