Kodak Moments

We've all heard the term Kodak moment meaning this would be a good moment to capture on film. You always say it when your taking pictures like this.

Dave & I

Really that's not a very interesting picture. We were at a company Christmas party mostly pretty bored because the band was terrible, we'd just had a mediocre meal, and they were only serving 2 drinks to each guest. That's not a memory that needed to be captured. Really it's pictures like this.

Me

They make you laugh or cry or generally remember how you were feeling when they were taken. By the way that's me. I don't know why I have wiskers drawn on my face but I know my Mom will giggle when she sees that picture again.

Actually it was a moment with my Mom that made me realize that when you have a real Kodak moment you don't always want a picture of it. We were in her old pickup truck driving home from the store laughing and singing along with the stereo splitting a box of doughnuts. It's a good memory but not a flattering image.

The orange in the mouth pic is priceless! I thought of that sceen on The Godfather. LOL! Yes, a picture can take you to any place that you've been.
