Click away…

When I met you for the first time some years ago, the one thing I learned about you even before I spoke to you or knew your name was your passion for photography. I stood there among a bunch of strangers (then) and I remember hearing someone say that it was your hobby; you were so good at it that they had assigned you as the official photographer to cover the function.

And I instantly understood what they meant.

You were standing with a camera in your hand, shooting every little detail, clicking everything / everyone around you, happily lost in your own world. The zeal that came pouring through your every click was so incredible. I think that was one of the first reasons why I liked you. And today, when I can list millions of reasons why I love the person that you are, the enthusiasm I see in your while you hold a camera remains one of the top ones.

I have spent so much time with you over the years seeing you take photos of everything that catches your fancy. The beauty that is caught in some shots you take leaves me speechless. I enjoy seeing the world through your eyes for it is, at times, beyond words.  So, whenever I saw you wanting to own that dream camera but not taking the plunge because you weren’t sure if it was worth it, I never understood. And now that you have finally bought it after thinking over it so much, it’s made me the happiest person on earth.

It might not be so obvious to you why I jumped with joy when I saw the delivery truck pull over to drop off your package. It might not make sense to others why you getting a camera is such a big deal to me. But to me it’s all clear. Investing on something that will help you delve into your passion, your hobby, and your talent is something I have always wanted. And I am so glad that you did it.

The delight I saw on your face when you held new camera only made me happier. With every step you took with it, with every photo you clicked with it, I fell in love with you all over again. As you explore more and create magic with every shot, I will proudly stand by you and wish for this talent of yours to grow with time.

So, go on, love. Capture the moments and make lasting memories. Best wishes!
