Long ago - sometime between 1998 and 2005 - I shot this photo of Mom beside a tripod. You'd think that I would have shot Mom from the tripod, but no. I like the expression on her face: "Why are you doing this?" It's too bad the tripod is in the shot, because otherwise it would be a reasonably well-composed image of Mom and the garden. Well, with a little cropping, maybe. On the other hand, I could use Photoshop to turn the tripod into one of the machines from War of the Worlds, but then it would be menacing my mother, and that's no good.
