The candid photo catches the messes that we make in life. It catches the socks on the floor and the children with holes in their clothes. It is when I pull out my camera for the thing my kids love to do best. They love to play video games. But I realize that I don’t have a single video of my kids playing video games. I should take some.
One day I am going to look back on my life and remember my children when they were young. I will remember that they used to spend a lot of time looking at the tv playing video games. They would do that forever if they could. But, of course, I don’t let them do that.
Sometimes they eat breakfast in the messy sunroom in front of the television too. And I get photos of the weight machine that nobody uses.
