“Taking pictures is savoring life intensely,

every hundredth of a second.” 

– Marc Riboud

Are you dedicated to capturing life’s little moments with your camera?

This morning I was perched on a bridge in the soft morning light. The severe cold (-4) created a gentle layer of steam on the winding river ahead.  After snapping a few photos, I peaked at my camera’s screen to evaluate each image… only to find “no card in camera” illuminated on the screen.  Um… missed the moment.  I have had several recent situations where moments evaporate while my SD card is attached to my Mac instead of my camera. Perhaps this never happens to you.

Apparently I need a tiny spare.


I drilled a teeny tiny hole into the SD card’s case and used a jewelry wire to attach the case to the camera strap ring.  I couldn’t stop with a sweet functional solution. I had to make it “cute,” adding a tiny photo to each side.  Weird, I know!



        Ready for a peak at my other project?

IMG_3428I made a 11 x 14 print of the this very old family photo (look at that shape – no date so I am not sure when it was “developed” but it has some history).

I trimmed my print to fit a black saddle stool’s contoured seat.


This magic self-adhesive worked like a dream, helping me to attach the photo to the stool.




Next, I will finish with a few coats of sealer (polyurethane).

Now I will step away… before I wallpaper with photos.

I hope you enjoy many splendid moments this weekend.
