I can’t tell you how happy I was to see that Apple holiday ad showing the kid “constantly” on his phone during the family gatherings. I’m that kid. At family functions, trips, parties, or whenever there are one or more of us gathered I am guaranteed to hear my mom say, “Christi, get off your phone.” Well, thanks to Apple I’ve been vindicated. I’m on my phone because I’m taking pictures. And your welcome. Because one day when you’re searching for memories or want to make a slideshow my photos will appear.
Okay rant over. On a recent trip to visit my twin sister in Albuquerque, New Mexico I pulled out my trusty Canon and go to snapping. She had a great little weekend planned with visits to Santa Fe, the Santuario de Chimayo, and the Sandia Mountains (watermelon in Spanish if you didn’t know). We stayed in a great vacation rental house in the Corrales area that had great decor appeal and comforts. Way better than some two bed, four towels, one chair hotel. So maybe I was on my phone a lot taking pictures, some that turned out better than those on my Canon, but it’s worth it when I can add one of these beauties to my computer desktop screen and sit back for a moment and take in the memory.
