I felt like I went back in time for a moment this week… and I loved it!
My wife and I were walking on a popular beach in Oregon, when a couple we were passing held out their cell phone and pleasantly asked, “Would you mind taking our picture?” I use to hear (and even ask) that question all the time on vacations, hikes or at any other outing with a view I’d like to capture with me in it. Now, with cell phones and selfie sticks, it seems no one ever asks that question any more. At least not until last week.
My answer to the couple… “ABSOLUTELY!!”
I miss being asked that question. It’s always been fun to share a moment like that with someone, as you help them preserve a memory. With all the options available that remove the need to interact, it was nice to be invited to share the moment with them.
I hope they enjoy the photo as much as I enjoyed taking it.
