You know I really wanted to take more pictures of this past weekend. Even with my phone it didn't really matter. However I got caught up in the moment forgetting to take it out. Granted I don't have pictures, but it was a fun weekend and I have the memories. Granted pictures don't fade these days, they just get lost. But when you allow yourself to get caught up in the moment there is something about the memory that is formed, at least for me. Unless it feels natural to take the picture sometimes it doesn't feel right taking the camera out. Taking the camera out can sometimes breaks the moment. When you're out letting out the stresses of the week that moment can be all you have.
I think that's why I take less pictures than I used to. I have for awhile been wanting to loose myself in the moment, enjoying it and my friends that are with me.
I feel I should add that the photographer that takes pictures of the nightlife has a very important job. He's capturing these candid moments of people loosing themselves to the music, having fun, and living life.
Attached is the one picture from this weekend. It's from Friday's most excellent party at Cielo where local Dj's Sleepy and Boo played.
