I know you must wonder if I do anything aside from taking pictures of the Grandgirl. I’m addicted. I can’t help myself. I love her so much I just want to share.
I am also amazed at her ability to pose. Aside from telling her on occasion to move locations to a better background location, she just jumps into a pose and will usually let me snap a good number of pictures. I remember myself at her age. You had to drag me in front of a camera. That attitude shows in the majority of the pictures of my youth. Scowly face in every one.
I guess with all the modern electronics, kids have grown up with a higher comfort level in front of the camera. What I don’t understand is this sticking out the tongue thing you see everywhere. She usually asks when are we going to take that picture and I usually explain that I don’t want to remember her that way but will usually take one shot so she can be cool.
I remember doing the peace symbol in all my pictures for a long time. I guess my parents cringed at that too. When I look back they don’t look stupid, just a sign of the time, so I guess I’ll have to go with the flow when it doesn’t totally flow against my desires and as long as I get one good picture to keep.
