I love taking photos of people when they don’t realize it. I think this comes from the fact that I used to hate having my photo taken, and some people I know still do.  That means it’s easier to catch a smile when people don’t know I’m taking a photo.

And have you noticed how completely unnatural people become when they know they’re having their photo taken? Especially college kids. College kids are weird.

    As you know I hate having my picture taken, and I know I become totally self-conscious and stiff and unnatural when someone stands me up for a photo. I think it goes back to those awful elementary school pictures, where the first thing they did in the 60s was tell me to take my glasses off, which caused me to screw up my face because I couldn’t see beyond the end of my nose.

    It’s true, catching people unawares leads to some beautiful pics…and some crazy ones!

      And the crazy ones are just so fun! I think you should let people take more photos of you. Someone will be glad to have them one day.

    And what IS that thing with duck-lips? Do women really think that’s attractive? O.o

      I don’t get it either. My only “duck-lip selfie was in the selfie I took for Duck Dynasty day at the office.
