Notable Quotes

My family did the same ridiculous thing on their trips, posing in every picture they took, the landmark out of focus and obscured behind them -- a subtle and subversive proclamation that my family, with their clothes wrinkled by travel, the boredom poorly masked by the we're-taking-a-picture-now smile, was far more important than the eye-candy that had inspired removing the lens cover.
Cheeni Rao, In Hanuman's Hands

That reminds me of an episode of The Danny Thomas Show from the 50's. Danny and his wife traveled to Europe. He took her picture everywhere. When you looked at the photos, she had the monument, building, tower, etc. growing out of the top of her head.
