Since I got my first digital camera in 2001, I have carried a camera with me nearly everywhere we’ve gone out to dinner or site-seeing. I snap pictures, I show people the pictures I have just shot of them, catching them being themselves… like the candid photo of the woman and her sleeping child, at left.
I always offer to e-mail them the picture when I get home. They write down their e-mail address and hand it to me, saying, “That would be great.”
I always follow through.
But only about 1 out of 50 ever even writes back to say “thanks!”
Isn’t that weird?
