The Lady Behind the Camera

Anyone who knows me, is aware of how much I love taking pictures. Anywhere you find me, rest assured I will have my camera with me...just in case. Now that cell phones have cameras, that opens up even more opportunities to document my life around me.

Since my simply beautiful and amazing granddaughter has been born,I have already filled two photo albums,have some waiting to go into an album, have some on the way in the mail and many unprinted pictures on my computer. 

 It is impossible for me not to have a camera around this special little girl.  She has the most expressive face I have ever seen.  Her beautiful eyes are always dancing around trying to soak in everything moving around her.
(kind of like her Granny trying to absorb her surroundings through her pictures)

I often wonder if when she sees "Granny", she sees a "camera"?  

"Is that you Granny?"

 I am hoping that one day when she's looking through the many, many ,MANY photo albums I have, she may smile  and remember that I'm that silly lady that was always hovering over her, that captured all of those funny and amazing shots she's looking at. I pray she will appreciate the love and time I put into every shot.  I guess I'm hoping to leave my legacy of love through my pictures.

 I might be in very few of the pictures, but my heart and soul is in EVERY ONE of them. I'm the lady behind the camera.
