I typically use my phone to take pictures. No more carrying around a clumsy SLR. It’s easy and I always have it with me. PLUS my phone’s camera is voice activated, which I find very handy, not to mention entertaining.
And apparently so do others.
Case in point:
We were at the Edison/Ford Winter Estates for the annual Holiday Nights.
They go all out decorating the houses with period decorations including Christmas lights and I LOVE taking pictures.
With my phone it’s easy peasy….I just hold it up, say ‘cheese’ and it triggers the shutter.
Some of the other visitors were impressed. Some watched with interest….most didn’t even notice.
Or so I thought.
The boys found it amusing as I walked around the grounds repeatedly saying ‘cheese’.
I took it good naturedly as they teased me.
But the final indignity came as I held up my phone to snap a picture, and from behind me I heard a chorus of people shout ‘CHEESE!’
Actually it was hilarious!
