I recently bought a camcorder; simple reason - as a photographer I concentrate on taking pictures that are needed for school, special projects, Dreamstime, etc.; but in the meantime I seem to forget to take pictures of the people I love. My computer contains thousands of images with landscapes, nature, still life, but there are only some with my loved ones. My Dad died three months ago and I cannot forgive myself for not taking pictures of him. I took his presence for granted and now I only have my mental images of him... and they will fade away. So I bought the camcorder because I learned my lesson the hardest way possible. I try to record their faces, how they talk, move, smile... to have a piece of them if God decides to take them away.
