Ah Humor, we find it in so many forms... sometimes the giggles and grins just erupt. Sometimes we need to search just a bit. Don't you love self portraits? If you can avoid the nose hair, double chins, and raucous laughter! It is that ability to laugh at ourselves, and enjoy it with others that helps me through the day. What can bring down the walls, and help you laugh at yourself?

  1. One of my favorite photos of my small family is the five of us looking at a big mirror at our local zoo. It was a perfect setting to hit the 'Snap' button while holding the camera to the side. :) What good memories of our family of smiles that photo brings.
