I have never seen anyone take advantage of a photo op like Jim. Here is what it must be like to walk down the street with Jim.
Carolyn: "So then this stupid bitch in my Bible study starts to talk about her big old King James and...
Jim: "WAIT!!! There's a huge pyramid of oranges over there! Take my camera!"
Carolyn: "WHY? I was just getting to the part when I opened my jacket to reveal my "Jesus is my Homeboy" t-shirt!"
Jim: "Whatever! If I stand in just the right way, I will totally look like Carmen Miranda!"I take probably 100 photos A DAY when I am on vacation. Not all of them are things on people's heads. But many are. No one is safe from my critical eye for embarrassing pictures.
Here's how it really happens:
Jim: Ha-ha-ha... that's a funny story. Now just stand over here.
Carolyn: Why? Are they lowering a piano from a crane above?
Jim: No. Don't worry. A little to the left, little more, now stand on your tip toes... (click!)
Again, No one is safe!!!
It's not always things on heads however. Sometimes, you find yourself driving through Southern Alberta and you see a perfectly good opportunity just waiting for a photo at a rest area. Perhaps it's a rest area that has an exhibit. An exhibit on the natural wonders of history and fossilized bones of creatures that lived many years ago. And it comes to me, as if in a dream, with just the right positioning, and just the right camera angle, I could have the most amazing picture for my photo album. (click on it to see it larger) I promise you, this one is not photoshopped in any way...
