As promised, here are some of the “good” photos I took while we were on Long Island last week visting Duggs’ side of the family and a lot of our friends there. In my earlier post, I used the snap shots from my iPhone (which aren’t so shabby), but now here are some better pics that we took with our real camera.
And even though we have a fair amount of pics, I wish I had taken more! I always do. It seems so annoying at the time to have out the camera and to nag everyone to pose and take pics. But then after the fact, when you have nice photos, you’re always so glad you did it. So my new thing is not being afraid to be the annoying one – because the benefit in the end is so worth it.
Okay. Enough rambling, here’s from the wonderful time we had on Long Island with family, friends, loved ones near and dear:
Like I said, I wish I’d taken more photos. These hardly paint the picture of the time we had there – no image can really encapsulate how nice it is to see family when it’s been so long since you were all last together. But some are better than none, so I appreciate y’all checkin’ out the ones we did manage to take.
And next time someone’s pestering you to smile, think of the big picture – maybe the person with the camera writes a blog and they’re trying to fully illustrate a week-long road trip with oodles of pics. Maybe!
As always, thanks for reading! xoxo, hhr
