A Photo That I Took

I took photography for two years back in high school. For a long time it was something I enjoyed enough to consider making a career of. However, Bluefield College, being the small school that it was, didn’t offer a whole lot when it came to photography options. It wasn’t as if I could sign up for a photojournalism career path. So photography became the kind of hobby that sat on the back burner.

Luckily, there was a yearbook in college. And since the staff was nearly non-existent, there was ample opportunity to take pictures for that yearbook. And the best part? I got reimbursed for money spent on film and developing. Since then, I’ve made the switch to the digital camera. Mostly because buying film and having it developed is way more expensive than taking digital pictures and creating photo albums on Facebook. For a long time, though, I didn’t like using the digital camera as much as I liked my old manual film camera. It just wasn’t as fun to me.

So I haven’t taken many photos in the last few years. But, back in the day, I took a lot. And a lot of those I was able to scan into the computer thanks to this fancy all-in-one printer/scanner thing I used to have. So I picked this picture of two kids that I took while I was on a mission trip in Brazil. There’s nothing deep about it. No hidden meaning. It was just a random, candid shot that I liked. Have a good day, kids.

They're probably thinking about how bad the Americans are at playing soccer on their playground. Also, these kids are grown-ups now.
