summer swimming.

We went to this placed called Monkey Rock for the first time over the weekend and I was impressed. I've been living here for almost a year and somehow I didn't know these beautiful places exist. Every time we got out of the car I debated bringing my camera or not but I knew I'd regret it if I left it. I know I'm no professional photographer (far from one, actually). But there's something about cameras that can capture small moments like this to look back on in 40 years... and that makes me happy. Moral of the story: bring your camera everywhere.

  9. I do this to myself all of the time and then I go, "bring it with you" and end of forgetting it and missing awesome capture moments!! Just stash it in your purse, then you'll never forget it :D
