Life With the Photo Crazed

This past week was a good example of what life with a photo obsessed person can be like.  I tend to do this thing...well, I'm not sure how to describe it.  We are riding around and all of the sudden I want to stop.  Like right there, right now kind of a stop.  It's more like a STOP, to be honest.  Because I see something I want to capture and who knows when we might get this way again so I need to do it now.  So if that means stopping in the middle of the road, so I can stand on the side of the road, as long as it is safe to do so-then we do it.  And I'm often so glad for this because I catch things like this:

Which in real life is just breathtaking because it looks like the mountains are literally right behind this great barn:

Then sometimes, I just have Nathan stop the truck so I can quickly open the door and snap a few shots while standing on the running board of the truck:

Sometimes I ask him to just stop and I stay sitting in the truck and snap away:

And then he gets tired of this game, and I have to just roll the window down to snap pictures.  While we are still moving.  He doesn't even slow down for me.  Can't say I blame him because we'd never get anywhere if he always gave in to my requests.  I still get some decent shots this way, and if nothing else, it's a memory captured:

Living the life in Washington!

Sounds like a wonderful compromise. He stops for you and he also gets to say "enough."
