The camera went along in my backpack thinking that maybe I could get some holiday snaps any maybe a portrait of Ronald. Well Ronald had other thoughts on that. We walked to the ocean when the sun went down and he put me on the spot. While the sun was going down I became the subject and Ronald snapped away like a seasoned pro. Which made me laugh because usually I am the one walking and talking saying lean this way please, look at me please, turn your head slightly in this direction. Now Ronald was holding my camera being the photographer speaking words of encouragement and he did great.
Well now I remember what it feels like again to be in that spot, to feel oncomfortable, not know what to do with my hands, my legs. Do I need to smile or tilt my head? What ever you like came as a reply and so I had to laugh out loud looking at myself standing there being the object of this photo session.
Looking at the result I must admit that is good to be in front of the camera every once in a while just to remember what it feels like to feel ackward and uncomfortable being on the spot.
