I can't really complain about very much during this pregnancy. Yes, I wake up five times in the middle of the night for no apparent reason and and yes I'm suddenly a terribly picky eater and yes none of my clothes fit and yes, my back hurts but it usually hurts anyway. In the grand scheme of things, knock on wood, I have had a wonderful six and a half months so far.
But, and there's always a BUT, if there was one thing I could complain about, it would be the fact that I simply cannot carry my camera with me every day, every where I go. I'm looking forward to this baby for so many reasons that I cannot possibly list here - I already feel like I know her with every single kick. And when she gets here I'm very excited to know that I get to show her this beautiful city that she will call him and push her around in a stroller with my camera underneath it. I haven't been able to carry my camera because it's just too heavy to deal with and I'm already carrying around an extra XX amount of pounds of baby weight.
I was looking through my archives and I found these photos, many of which you've seen here before, that remind me of how much I love photography. Me and my camera. My morning walks are not quite the same without my Nikon but I have even better company now as my girl kicks me along and motivates me to keep going and soon we will be together again with a brand new subject to admire. In the meantime, I'm enjoying going back and looking at these.
All of these were taken in New York City. Home sweet home.
