Photo Therapy

Those of you who are Facebook friends of mine have already seen where yesterday kind of took me for a not fun ride. So what did I do today to make myself feel better? I took pictures.

Having a camera (of any kind) in my hands and using it always gives me an endorphin boost. Some days I like the slow, methodical process of shooting with my medium format film camera... Some days prowling the street with my Olympus OM-1 gives me purpose. At 6:30am, the familiar heft of my digital baby makes everything alright.

But some days I'm running around like a chicken with her head cut off and all I can manage to do is whip out my cell phone. I'm okay with that. It gets me seeing and shooting instead of passing up a shot that makes me happy.
