Two things occurred to me in the process of not taking any pictures last night:
One, the best pictures seem to appear when I don't have my camera, so I need to start bringing it with me everywhere. Two, my wife is home with two kids all day, she's not going to let me take the camera and not be able to shoot first smiles, and the like.
So I need to replace the point and shoot that I sold to buy my nifty fifty lens. I should really think these things through in advance next time!
Here's hoping I have time to shoot tonight.
