Appreciating Photographers - Maui Hat Draw Edition

Much of this blog is about chronicling events of my life, both to share with you, dear readers, and to have for myself when I am old and grey. And while it occasionally turns out okay to have a words only post, everyone knows that posts with pictures are way better. But if I'm busy doing, I don't have much time to take pictures of those doings. I do okay when I'm diligent about it, but it's fair to say that many posts lack in the photo department.

Enter other photographers, people who know what they are doing, have great equipment, like doing it, and do it prolifically. I'm so appreciative when someone like that is 1) around and 2) willing to share their photos with everyone. And it makes creating a decent blog post that much easier.

Case in point: Kurt at the Maui Hat Draw Frisbee Tournament. Without the awesome photos he took, I'd have 2 or 3 photos Della captured on my not-a-phone to share*. Instead, I've got a whole gallery to choose from to create a post that conveys the experience in a much more efficient way.

And since pictures say much more than words, here they are:

Big hanks to Kurt and all the other photographers out there that share their art!

Oh man, "Pole Smokers" - haven't played that in a while. Great fun. You can sure smoke a pole like a champ Wren!

I do find it is a hard balance to strike between wanting to chronicle events by taking pictures, and wanting to just form memories instead of constantly having the camera out and not actually experiencing life. What I think would be perfect is if I just had a professional photographer with a nice camera who followed me around and always caught me in flattering candid poses, making even the most mundane of everyday tasks, such as washing dishes and clipping one's toenails, look romantic and exciting--especially for blog purposes. S/he wouldn't charge, of course, and s/he'd be so good at it you wouldn't even know s/he was there.

Alas, I'll have to make do with a tripod and just being a weirdo who photographs herself.

Anyway, awesome action shots! Kurt did an amazing job capturing the fun.
