Before I was lucky enough to become Liam’s Dad, when I was just Eric, I fancied myself a photographer of sorts. A hobby to start but I worked pretty hard at it. I shot my first wedding, did a few different shoots for a local college’s radio station including some portraits, even did the group photos for a dance studio here in town. Then my priorities changed and that’s ok with me. I have been growing more serious about writing in the past few years and it isn’t as if I got rid of my photography equipment or anything. I’ll get back to it.
Last night while working on a tech issue here at chez Olson I needed to back some things up onto an external hard drive. The majority of the space was taken by photographs. thousands and thousands of photographs. It turned into quite a walk down memory lane.
I made a promise to myself that I was going to post here more often and keep the long breaks to a minimum. So I’m going to use all that past work to fill the gaps. When I need to post something quick I’ll just dip into my pre-Liam stuff.
For our first entry from the vault though let’s not stray too far into the past from my parenting days. The photos in this post are all from a vacation to Chicago that Karin, my sister Sandra and I made to visit my little brother in August of 2008.
Liam was there too, let’s just say that Karin packed him in her carry-on.
Liam’s night nurse just arrived. I’m sorry but getting a good night’s sleep wins out over thinking of anything more to say. Hope you like the photos.
Talk to you soon.
