froggy dust bunnies

So here’s a confession. I sometimes say I have a love/hate relationship with photography. Honestly though, I am head over heels in love with the actual process of taking a photo. I love how, the moment I look through the viewfinder, the rest of the world is lost to me. I only see what is on the other end of my lens. I love the challenge of getting The Shot. And knowing the moment when I have got it, then pushing to get something even better. I love all of that. I could make out with it on the couch for hours. I just would like to break up with all that comes after.

I hate loading the photos into the computer. Culling them. Editing them. Cropping. blah blah blah. I despise sitting at the computer for hours on end. I just want to snap my fingers and be done with it all. And I have the need to point out that this is not to say that my images require lots of editing…I am a firm believer that if an image requires any significant amount of time to make it look presentable, than it should just be deleted. But raw images need some basic attention. And when you have a gazillion to edit it sort of makes me want to run away. Which is apparently what I did with our vacation photos from *cough* eight months ago *cough*

I didn’t even realize my avoidance game was so strong until I went to blog about a day from our trip…and realized that I had only edited about 15 of the hundreds of photos I had taken from the trip. oops. So I have busted our the Swiffer and I am evicting these wretched dust bunnies. Have you ever tried getting dust bunnies off of frog skin?! Not easy.
