I'm really late with my post for Angie's Wordful Wednesday. I love WW and hate to miss it so as the saying goes.....better late than never.
I was digging through old digital photo files and I came upon some of my very first digital pictures.
My husband bought me a Nikon Coolpix (the swivel) back in June of 2005. I was so attached to my 35mm SLR film camera that it took me almost 8 months before I started using my digital camera.
The camera was really nice, but it wasn't easy to use and for someone who was in love with her 35mm SLR, with all it's lovely lens and bounce flash......it was hard for me to move on.
Oh, but the thrill of being able to view your photographs right away.........digital was slowly but surely dragging me away from my film camera.
So on to the picture I want to share. I adore this picture because of the story behind it.
It goes something like this. We had visited The Little Mermaid the year before this picture was taken. She was one of Kate's favorite princesses and we stood in line for nearly 40 minutes so that Kate could visit with her again.
As the Little Mermaid chatted with Kate she asked if she had visited with her before. When Kate said yes, the Little Mermaid said, "I thought I recognized you." Kate spent the rest of the day beaming with pride that the Little Mermaid had remembered her from the year before.
I don't know how much Little Mermaid gets paid to make the day of little girls.......but my guess it isn't enough.
