Calm yourselves, Social media is still alive and kicking! A prompt from Mama Kat a couple of weeks ago got me thinking about what if. What if social media no longer existed? What would be my new hobby? Great question. I mean, social media is so widespread even grandmas are tweeting.So what would I do if it went buh-bye?
In college, I took a photography class. It was an eye-opening experience and one of my most memorable classes. I knew then that I’d been bitten by the photog bug (if there is such a thing). This was of course in the olden days, i.e late 90’s. In that time, we actually used film and a dark room. Yeah, those were the days. As much as I love the digital era – there’s something about film that feels good.
Nonetheless, if social media died tomorrow… no Facebook, no Twitter, no blog, I think I’d be obsessed with photography. I’m getting there already. I have become enamored again with the idea of photography. I’ve been looking into cameras like a crazy woman. I’m going to go ahead and do the 21st century digital thing.
I love the idea of taking cool photos of my family – especially my little munchkin. I also really like simple nature shots. There are so many cool things I see when I’m out and about or just walking our dog. I’d love to be able to capture that artistically. I’ve even purchased a course to jump-start my learning in this new hobby. I’m going to see what I can do with it. Should be interesting.
