Photos and Such

I really prefer candid photos. Actually, I prefer none to be taken of me. Yet, yesterday, my husband and I dropped by my brother's house to surprise him and his wife with a cake for their anniversary. (We had taken them out to dinner Saturday evening.) My sister-in-law took this photo of their dog eating some of my cake. I thought she was only taking the dog's photo. I barely had on any makeup and was wearing what I had worn to clean my place. Now I am on Facebook! Ugh!

You are naturally beautiful! You look fine in that picture. MY mom hates her picture being taken too! She likes me to take pictures of her decorations for the holidays without her. She forgets how she decorates from one holiday to the next. I have pictures on my kindle, so it helps her! Don't worry About being on Facebook

Thank you, Marty. I can see how photos help your mom. I am usually the picture taker, so I am not in many photos.

Dianne it is a stunning photo. Don't do yourself a disservice be proud of who you are and of your good looks. I guess none of us like to see ourselves in photos but seriously you have nothing to be ashamed about at all.

This is a wonderful photo. I do not like to have photos of me taken, but it is true that candid photos are the best.

What a sweet gesture to enjoy some anniversary cake together. If someone has to take your picture and post it online, at least you took a good photo.

You don't really think people can tell you don't have any make up on, do you? The angle of the picture, doesn't show that at all, and I think a facebook share would be fine, although I know what you mean and it's nice when people ask before sharing photos taken of us. It's actually a bit hard to see the distinction between your sweater and the dog, which I can't even tell what kind of animal it is. Did they mind sharing the cake with the animal?

The dog turned up her nose at first. Then dug right in. No, they didn't mind. We all laughed, because the dog is a fussy eater. Thanks.

You look quite lovely as always. However, I do hate that everything is up on Facebook these days.

I ate most of it. The dog ate the rest of what is in the photo. It was delicious!

It's a lovely photo and if I you hadn't confessed to clean-the-house clothes and no-makeup I would have never known.

I would not complain about this one. It is a good photo, and the backlight makes it even better.
