{ charmed, i'm sure }

I've often wondered if I'd still take photographs if I couldn't develop them. I assumed the answer was no, but our current trip to the lowcountry proves the contrary.

 

I've shot more than 500 images since arriving here on Friday -- even though my usb cable appears to be bad, and I can't upload anything. I've gone from feeling incredibly pissed, to positively panicked (the way an addict must feel when she can't get her fix) -- to feeling FREE.

 

There's something to be said for looking through the viewfinder and just staying in the moment -- not thinking about what the image will look like out-of-camera- or in photoshop, or on the screen, or on my website. It's the closest emotion I've felt to my before-I-found-photography-life.

 

Still: I ordered a new USB cable from here and had it sent to our house in PA. Hope it's there when we get home!

 

LOL.
