Well, earlier this evening I put out a Facebook status post that there might not be any blog updates today because the power was out as the result of a bad electrical storm that passed through our area about 6 p.m. It’s now after 9 and the power is back on so I’m going to get out a quick post!
What is it about people (well, kids anyway) that when a camera comes out, they want to be in the picture? They will push and shove and figure out some way to wheedle their way into the shot.
Here’s a picture (you’ll soon note that I did not take this picture since I’m in the picture taking a picture) of three young girls in one of the slums we visited. These three girls seemed to be great friends who really cared for one another. They were very polite about wanting their picture taken, and I was happy to oblige. This photo was actually taken by Nancy Lovell from Lovell-Fairchild Communications, so kudos to her for this shot. I know this is supposed to be pictures I have taken, but maybe just this one time, you’ll humor me and allow me to be part of the subject matter!
ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY: in 1900, one of the world’s most famous trademarks was registered when the Victor Corporation patented the image of “Nipper”, the dog, looking into the gramophone machine. Later, the company would become known as RCA Victor.
TRIVIA FOR TODAY: California sea otters spend nearly 100% of their time in the water, while Alaska otters sleep, groom themselves, and nurse their pups on land.
