I bring my camera everywhere – when my Mom sees this she likes to remind me that I hated photos of any kind growing up – travel or otherwise. True statement. Picture taking is just one of many activities I never appreciated as a kid, but as a parent I have entirely new perspective.
When I saw that Debbie of Delicious Baby started Photo Fridays, I got excited. I have countless photos of my son Devon (now 5) at various stages of his life in a dozen fabulous locations. He doesn’t remember most of the trips – but he loves to look at the pictures with me and talk about the things we did.
I was particularly snap happy during our last trip to Italy in October with the gorgeous fall leaves – Devon decided by the second day that he’d had enough. A moment of karma for me as he made faces instead of smiled and told me in no uncertain terms that I was not allowed to take any more pictures of him. Of course, I caught this moment on film and now it is another fond memory we can relive again and again – and we will.
At the end of a trip the “people” photos are often more fun and interesting than the “place” photos. I’ll be checking Photo Friday each week for a smile – travel photos make me very, very happy.

Classic shot. It’s so nice to record the genuine moments … no matter what they are.
Oh yeah…I think people have caught -me- plenty of times with that don’t-take-my-photo look!
Cute shot. Thanks for sharing.
Oh, I am glad to find another Italy-lover!
Cute photo, too. There are days when we all feel that way.
