    Less than Amateur!!!

    I had to share this...............I nearly wet myself from laughing!
    My friend was around with her 7wo grandaughter and I was doing the obliguatory xmas shots for them!

    I asked my friend to grab my camera and take a shot of me and the Chubba....(the baby, lol)
    She stood there and stared at the camera hesitantly, I told her that unless she actually picked it up, no shot would be had....it wasn't that advanced!!
    She picked it up and looked down the barrel stating that she could see us, but how did she take the photo.............I looked up and this is what I saw, lol

    After much laughter and silliness we set her on the right track................eventually!!
    Only to be told after a 1/2 dozen shots that she had better give it back before she wasted all my film!!!!!!

    I guarantee that we will never let her live this one down

    She was obviously trying to take a photo of the 'apple of her eye'!

    Should be in the "Self-Portrait" section.
    CC, Image editing OK.

    Fantastic! Love it - did you have to get her to recompose so you could take her photo?

    Good she wasn't trying to look through the flash!

    She may have been momentarily blinded and then stumble and drop the camera!
    All my photos are taken with recycled pixels.

    Wisdom, is knowing not to serve it in a fruit salad.
