Seventy Seven

While on vacation with my dad last week, there was one constant source of entertainment for me – it made me laugh numerous times throughout the day and it still makes me laugh even now when I think about it. Aren’t you just dying to know what it is? It’s my dad’s trigger finger. I’m sure you are confused, so, please allow me to explain.

While walking the streets of France and London last week, my dad always kept his camera on and as a result, he was almost constantly taking pictures unknowingly. I would occasionally hear the camera click and start laughing because the camera would be in my dad’s pocket or in his hand or even pointed up towards his face.

Every day I would hear the occasional click of the camera while it was dangling alongside my dad and it never ceased to make me laugh. Towards the end of the week, my dad started laughing too and often he wouldn’t hear it click so when I started laughing out of the blue, he would say, “Did I do it again?”

Needless to say, the title of this post is the number of pictures taken by mistake with my dad’s camera last week. There was even a series of 21 photos in a row from our outing at Versailles. I think they were all of his finger.

So, without further ado, I present to you a sampling of my dad’s now infamous accidental photos. I hope they give you a chuckle just as they did us.

Just walking along

Walking up to the chapel at the cemetery in Normandy

There were a lot with this red toned theme

Sitting at the desk in the hotel room

Walking in one of the gardens

There were a lot like this too - maybe the inside of his pocket?

haha - That is hilarious!
I guess he wasn't too concerned with battery conservation.

That's too funny. Isn't he glad he didn't get the "film developed" and then realize he paid for a bunch of pictures of his pocket? haha!

Now you need to a post with all the pictures he took of you looking confused!

hahaha! Love it! Andrew does that with his phone...always butt dialing people. If you ever get a call from him and hear the toilet flushing...well you get the idea :) Can you tell I am finally getting caught up on reading my blogs? It's 11:30 and I should really be in bed. The house is quiet because every soul is asleep but me. I'll pay for this tomorrow! :)
