Memory Book

Sid O’Neill:

I picked up something really cool from Costco today.

I’ve been having a personal struggle with photography over the last couple of years. Between the painful process of managing photos well and the distraction of constantly having my phone around to capture the moment, I’ve shied away and sometimes feel like I’m missing out because of it. In December 2012, I intentionally stopped taking and posting photos to Instagram. I don’t really enjoy taking photos or want to turn it into a hobby of mine so I figured I’d leave it to the pros and move on with things. I wanted to focus on writing and have that be my method of capturing life. The bonus was that my phone stayed in my pocket and I was interacting in the world around me without a screen as my viewport.

But I miss those overwhelming rushes that Sid felt.
