What else


- Waiting end of August to be back to France and see my family...

- 'Summer' is almost over here .... ;(

- It is migraines' week.... ;(
.

From generation to generation...

While looking at my pictures I start thinking, why do I love so much taking pictures. I think everything start with my grandma...She was the first who showed an interest in taking pictures, she has an amazing collection of pictures of the family, and I love her so much for that, i always said to her that the day she will leave, i don t want anything except her pictures, the best treasure ever. At 76, she s using a pc, chat with me on the internet, scans her pics, compare to my mum my god!
That s her, with me ;) first time I opened my eyes. The pic was took by my dad, who got the 'pic virus' from his mum. It s quite funny though, when my mum was about to give birth, my dad asked to wait a bit more so he could arrange the lights to take the best pics of me (he was good friend with the doctor) and when my mum was about to push my dad yelled 'WAIT!!! I forgot to put the film!' i have to say I was in hurry to get out, I was born 1 month before the due date!
I start using the 'plastic camera'when I was 14 I guess, every time I come home, I can see a pile of pics that my mum asked every time to clean it, but i can t get rid of it, and of course my mum does not have a scanner to scan them all! I really start taking pics with the digital camera appears, my first one, was a loosy HP that I could afford my few money! But I guess the real thing that made me want to take pictures was because of my dad s amazing shots. Years ago, he was using the 'reflex' camera with film, developing them in the 'dark room', and I think the picture that touch me the most is the one he made with my mum and I:

I simply love it, we re both eating crackers, it was an instant moment, we weren t posing on it... i can t even explain what i feel, but it is my fav pic! Now last year, I finally made it, I bought my first Nikon D40 which i m very proud of, u can find all my pics on my SMUGMUG! I hope I ll be able to make great shots, i d love to be a photographer.
I guess, this is one passion I share with my grandma and my dad:


i m happy about it, but we don t have all the same passions of course. Do u guys share a passion with a relative? Which one?

22 people read it till the end and comment on it ;):

Well i guess in my family we all are very highly opinionated people and considered good orators and debaters... with an inclination towards poetry .. my father my bro me ... Moms a principal so it's something very obvious in her as well

Gayatri said...

hmm.. everyone in my family loves music! Cess, you're soooo cute in the cracker eating pic. Btw, you should tell your mum i think really pretty :)

Cess said...

@τ ħ€ ĐάЎđяёάmёя

U love cookin? what s ur favourite dish and the one u cook the best?

Cess said...

@ descrying the shadows
I think its good to share something with ur parents, u can always learn from them, I love to listen to my dad when he s talking about lens, or mode to shoot specific objects/landscape/portrait, u learn a lot.

Cess said...

@Gayatri

a picture speaks a thousand words, and pictures of our childhood speaks so much that a day is not enough.

My dad likes taking pics and he had a Yashica, and i was always attracted to it. I never got a personal cam, but used to take pics in my cousins and friends cam, and during my puc, i got my first chance to use a filim SLR, and I fell in love with it. ( I read about SLRs when I was in school and i knew that i will own one of them one day) Last year, after a string of ( film and digital)point and shoot cameras, I got my D40.

u take nice snaps :-D

My dad is a wizard with automobiles and DIY stuff and my mom cooks amazingly well. I share all these passions, and am a self confessed foodie and I love cooking, and I do cook well. Automobiles - they are part and parcel of my life :-D I love working on them as much as riding/driving them.

Cess said...
