For those of you who tuned into yesterday’s Wordless Wednesday post and were wondering if Sadie was able to claim the orange peel, we’re happy to provide this follow up image:
We had a blast taking these pictures a couple of years ago. At the time we had three dogs and we were in kitchen snacking on cuties with the dogs. Sadie is quite food motivated and was willing to perform acrobatic feats to acquire her snacks, so most of the pictures are of her!
Ease of consumption and concise communication are two reasons that photography is a great way of documenting life. I catch myself going through old pictures more frequently than reading old journal entries, and images are much easier to share and reminisce with another than a three-page journal entry. One glance at an image of a shared experience and most, if not all of that experience, comes back to you.
I also love to write. Writing is a great way to clarify your thoughts and ideas. The written word can provide additional insights that photography isn’t able to provide, including context, both external and internal, that can be hidden from a photograph.
Combined, the two mediums together can be very powerful. Throw technological advancements into the mix and you’ve got yourself a pretty tasty meal! This meal doesn’t come without a cost, but that’s another post. For now, I’m reliving the moment that Sadie captured the orange peel with a warm, happy feeling and a big smile. I hope that it puts a smile on your face too!
