A daily record of gratitude; from quilting to photography to a mix of technology, books, movies and the musings of life!

Welcome to my Blog of my daily gratitude and photo of the day!

Since January 1, 2012, my goal is to write a daily sentence or two (or paragraph or two) about gratitude of the day and to include one photo (at least) that I took that day (but will add others from time to time). It has definitely been a challenge most days throughout the past eight years, and welcomed the challenge again this year - 2020 - Covid and all. I hope you will continue the ride with me!

Hello! The Phone's for You!

Can we all agree that the digital age is really something else, and that digital photography is just about equal now to film photography? (I know there are a few holdouts...and that's okay) However, the below photo was taken in 1992, probably considered a part of the "dark ages" of film photography, but still cute enough. Once the ubiquitousness of digital cameras were on the market, plus the double whammy of cameras as part of our phone, er handheld computer, the game of photography catapulted to a whole new level. 

Young people today have most likely never loaded a roll of film in an SLR camera, and that is okay too. But, as we know, everything is instant now; there is no waiting for film to be developed. Can we ever go back? Vinyl records are trying to come back but not sure how that one is taking off.

This throwback of "The Best Daughter" and Wally dog is one for the ages taken on a Canon AE1 Program purchased in 1984 (still have it). As you can see from the photo, kids of all ages are drawn to a phone, and today, we almost can't live without one. Hello, is that you?
