I was born into a family of photographers, so there has often been talk about “pictures.” My father loved taking pictures. Thanks to him, we have many, many slides from our life in Saudi Arabia and travels around the world.

While I have only ever used a point-n-shoot automatic camera, two of my siblings are quite accomplished photographers. Several of our family's next generation, including our son Eric, also have mad photography skills. I confess I am quite attached to these images, and pictures in general!

I know that there are many things that cannot be caught in in a photograph, but oh how I value the photographs I have! What secrets they share... I guess it's one way we can stop time, one way to remember everything, which has long been a goal of mine, judging from the thousands of scrapbook pages I've created over the years!And here's the thing: scrapbooks, pictures – they tell as much about the scrapbooker and photographer as they do about the subject... I love that!
