    My Mom is 84 years old and last Saturday when we were doing the family pictures at our Christmas gathering, she asked me how I was taking the pictures of us sitting on the bench next to her.
    I handed her my remote and said here mom, take our picture.
    Well she just kept pushing the button again and again...


    I think she wants a D70, tripod and a remote now :eek:

    And she looks like she's having a lot of fun doing it!

    I'm proof of that adage. :rolleyes: 

    Neat shot and neater story. :wink:
  4. Dave, I just love that photo.

    And a great story.
  5. Your right, you are never too old. I say that as I leave for a paid shoot this afternoon. Your mom is a natural with the remote so move her on to her own camera.:biggrin:

    Thanks Chris, Phil, and Gordon... I think she will enjoy that picture a little more when she sees it.
  8. Dave,

    That is great. She looks like she is having the time of her life.
  9. She looks like she's having a ball with that remote. Charming story and picture.
