When I was a child, I collected rocks. It didn’t matter where they came from. If I liked a rock I saw, then into my collection it went. When I became pregnant with my first son I started collecting antique, silver baby spoons. I scoured antique stores and and eBay looking for just the right spoon to add to my collection all the time. I think it’s a no-brainer then that being a photographer, I’m going to acquire things that have to do with photography from vintage cameras to funky jewelry to cool t-shirts. What’s even better is that those who know me well always seem to find something that, as my girlfriend who gave me the necklace above said, “When I saw it I knew I had to get it for you”. I’m the one who will carry that awesome camera tote and wear the cool camera earrings and have the cute little keychain. I love what I do and I ‘wear’ it with pride. And, like Martha Stewart says, that’s a good thing.
How about you? What collections do you have? Take a picture and share with us. I know I’m not the only out there!
