memories fade. camera brings life.

i was looking through my iphoto today for some specific pictures of co-workers, and I ran across these pictures shown here from a day adventure in venice beach.  this was several years ago, maybe 3 or 4.  i recall very much enjoying this particular day.  and coming across this find also reminded me that this is exactly why i enjoy photos and photographing so much.  it burns a memory in time. when your mind may fail you, a photo can bring the memory back to life.  enjoy.

when in doubt, revert back to childhood.

One sure way I have discovered to get out of ones own head, is to turn back time and act as a child.  Today I spent a few hours with a friend being silly at the pier arcade.  I mean seriously, it’s virtually impossible to not have a constant smile on your face while playing air hockey.  Give it a try…..I challenge you.

It was not an artsy photography day by any means…just documented a couple moments of goofiness.  We were having too many child chuckles to document skiball, boxing, pinball, and air hockey….but here are a couple photos to prove we were there!
