the power of a photograph

Even though kids are generally easier to capture naturally with the camera, a few adults obliged and let me take their photo. Although, some got cheeky with me and told me they would only do it if I could get them to the front of the line. I couldn’t do that and even if I could, it would have created a mob. I had my own request and that was that they had to actually smile for the camera. It was amazing how many laughed hysterically when they saw their smiling face on the back of my camera. It’s another reminder of the power of a photograph.
