SHINY HAPPY PEOPLE

I tend to like photos of people and faces better than things and places. My husband and my daughter both take photos of things around them: a flower, an interesting statue, the city skyline, someone's dog; not me. I DO take photos of flowers and trees and such, when I'm out walking or when it's springtime and everything is blowing my mind with its beauty, but usually it's the photos of friends and family that I want to have to remember vacations and trips and happenings by.
