Wishing I were back here....



...at the San Juan Capistrano Mission gardens...




...or catching JJ relaxing for a few minutes at Dana Point....




...and I could even handle being back here....


 ...at Laguna Beach for the Memorial Day celebration. Those 3-day weekends seem to go by so fast.  

So I'm feeling this impending sense of doom because sooner or later my very generous daughter is going to remember that I've still got her nice Cannon camera.  Then the fun will be all over, just like a 3-day weekend.    And I'll be back to taking photos on my iPhone for a little while.

So, what's the lesson here? Enjoy the good things while they last because they often don't. 


But the memories can last forever...
so take a lot of pictures...
with whatever camera you've got.

Enjoy today!


-Lynn


PS: Thanks Lindz for trusting me with your most prized possession, but most of all for sharing your love of photography with me.

  1. Your pictures are all great but I especially love the ones of your hubby relaxing and enjoying the view.

    Camera? What camera? She never loaned you a camera....she must have misplaced her camera somewhere...what? Well, yes...you DID buy a similar one...isn't that odd?;>)

    You are right-enjoy every one of those fleeting moments in life- they pass so fast~xo Diana

  3. Lovely! Nice collage-isn't picmonkey fun? Hope they don't make it a paid site anytime soon. I guess someone will soon be shopping for a new camera!
