I don’t recall scooters being popular in my neighborhood when I was a kid. My friends and I were more into bikes and roller skates … the old fashioned skates that fit over your shoes and had a key! I always had boo boos on my knees from falling when learning to roller skate on the bumpy sidewalks! Today I often see kids tooling around on scooters. They look like fun and there are probably no training wheels required! 🙂
The photographer’s height can have a huge impact on a photograph. For example … I am “vertically challenged” and have difficulty seeing down into the water lilies when they are in the center of the pond. Unless they are tilted toward me, I would need a ladder to photograph the centers of these flowers. A taller person may not have that issue at all. If you are photographing in a group and people stand in front of you, being tall is a clear advantage when you can see and shoot over their heads. Of course, the shorter folks are usually allowed to go in front … I like that!
I think this has quickly become one of my all-time favorite photos! Dad was photographing mom and baby in the sunflower field last weekend and I grabbed this quick photo when they turned around to admire the huge blooms.
I love this man’s shirt … “I was normal until my first Chessie”. I think all pet owners can relate. I need a t-shirt that says, “I was normal until my first Siamese!” 🙂
