Weekly Photo Challenge … Humanity

September 16, 2014

I don’t like having my photograph taken; in fact I refuse where possible. My mother was a photographer in the 50s and 60s; she was quite talented. She often took pictures of me and my siblings. We were a motley crew and often needed a bit of airbrushing before the procedures begun. She would scrub us to an inch of our lives, find  some clean socks and more difficult an un-crumpled blouse each. Then expect us to smile and looked relaxed! So the result was not always nice.  So for me, no humans except my son-in-law; also very  camera shy! But if you look closely you might see what is distracting him.

    all the world in a mirror lens – nice capture
    p.s. even as a child I disliked the all-seeing camera and would mostly pull faces rather than smile for it!

      Yes! my grandsons do that too ; it makes me smile … for me that wasn’t an option ; that was risking another brutal attack.

        I understand the nature of the force used to make you sit as subject now – >:[
