Before the Picture

Cruising around WordPress and oohing and aahing over the beautiful photography has left me wondering…..what happened before those wonderful photographs were captured?  We humans will go to extraordinary lengths to obtain that “perfect” shot, and those smiles we see weren’t always there two seconds before the shutter snapped.  I submit two photographs to make my case.  First shot:  Dingle, Beehive huts, Trying to get into the dwelling for the picture, dear husband hit his forehead hard on the immovable slab stone, letting out a big OWW! and then proceeded to smile his way through the picture.

Later, we all look back at the photos and say “Aaahhh…wasn’t that an amazing time”; totally blocking out those moments before.  But that’s a good thing in my opinion; forgetting the bad, holding on to the good, and looking forward to adventures today.  Slainte, Lisa

    • Yes, the bad things in life can come like a thief and trap you in a big net of regret. But I’m so thankful that God lets me cast that net off…free to move on! Thanks for writing, and have an awesome weekend Karen. 🙂 Lisa
