Great Moments in Photography II

Often, when posing for a picture, I will tilt my head to a flattering angle, freeze my unnatural smile, then ruin it all by blinking just as the photo is taken. It happens because I can feel my eyeballs drying up as the photographer fidgets with the focus or cannot find the right button. And I think to myself, is there time for me to sneak in one or two quick blinks? How about now?

It isn't moron tax, though, to blink when another person is behind camera. After all, you can't anticipate exactly when the photographer will take the picture. But what if you're the one taking a picture of yourself and your finger is on the button?


  1. OMG, you are so brave in posting that picture. Classic.

  2. It's totally awful, isn't it?
