The Day the Camera Came

Charity said "Humph" and went back to her book.

But later she built this - just so I that would have something impressive to photograph.

And Mervin did this - just so that I would have something graphic to photograph.

And Candace made these. It's very obvious why - just so that I would have something delectable to photograph.

Dad didn't even say "Humph" but kept right on reading his biography on the Roosevelts.

Later, though, he had to rescue the camera from a dangerous amateur (you know... the kind that don't know what anything means but start changing all the settings anyway).

"Wait for lessons, son. Wait for lessons."

Then, because he had to wait for lessons, I had something belligerent to photograph.

I tell you! The threats to a new camera from brothers! Clayton tried to drive his fist through the end of the lens the very first day.

Christian, at least, seemed to take things calmly and continued his job of picking up rocks.


All this photography starts to get to Dad:

*defensively* "This thing can take pictures too you know."

Finally. Somebody posed.

Candace was so excited when she first got her hands on it that she sprouted wings. :)

Would someone tell me what's the big deal?! It's just a camera.
