CFFC-Holiday Colours


Holidays are always colourful

I am sure you are all enjoying colourful holidays.

Despite recent Covid worries, I am also appreciating the vibrant decorations and the passion I see in individuals.

How do you want to remember this Yuletide?

By the number of hours, you spent in a particular place or how you spent the time with your people?

As an enthusiastic photographer, I am busy spending many hours clicking and in the process annoying my family members.

They complain that am squandering our treasured family time, and after all in this world, time is limited for each one of us.

I am in a dilemma.

If I spend more time with my family members without a camera…Am I missing something or Am I gaining something?

What would you have done in case you are a photographer with a loving family?

People claim that one can balance their life. It’s simpler to say than do.

Please share your thoughts.

  1. It’s understandable to feel torn between the desire to capture special moments through photography and the desire to fully be present with loved ones during the holidays. It can be helpful to have a balance between the two, and finding a way to incorporate both into your holiday celebrations may be the best approach.

    One option could be to set aside specific times for taking photos, and then fully focusing on being present with your family during the rest of the holiday. This way, you can still capture memories through your photography, but also prioritize being fully present with your loved ones.

    It’s also important to remember that happiness is not solely determined by external circumstances, such as how much time we spend with others or whether we are able to capture certain moments through photos. As Thich Nhat Hanh suggests, happiness is a way of being, and it can be found within ourselves regardless of external circumstances.

    Ultimately, it’s important to consider what brings you joy and fulfillment, and to find a balance that works for you and your loved ones. It may be helpful to have open communication with your family about your needs and desires, and to find ways to compromise and support each other.

    1. Wow!
      What a wonderful way you put it!
      As you rightly said allot a certain amount of time to photography with a full understanding from the family members and rest of the time without a camera. (Sadly the handy mobile phone cameras, still tempt one to try some clicks and one must handover the mobile to the family member)
      One must be in a position to satisfy the needs of a family member and also one’s wish for clicking.
      Finally nothing like supporting each other as you rightly put it.
      Thank you, my friends for this valuable input.

  2. Good question, Philo. Events, I think are often better enjoyed without the camera. Photo walks are best shared with a friend or family member. Vince and I often go out just to take pictures. Sometimes when I’m not in the mood, he gets his camera out, and suddenly, I’m in the mood too. Other times, I let him be the photographer.

  3. I have a lot of very unappealing event pictures you can have, LOL. The people there responded to them, but there might have been one good picture for every 75 that were average or less.
