I Dream of Owen

One of my favorite things about the new camera is how fast it takes pictures. With my old camera, I would click the button and w-a-i-t-f-o-r-e-v-e-r and then *snap*, the picture would take. By that time whatever cute thing I'd been trying to capture was over and done with, and my perfectly composed shot would consist merely of a ponytail flapping in the wind.

But this new camera....man. This thing is so flipping fast! I just go *click* *click* *click* and it takes the pictures right then and there. It's amazing.

The only trouble with the quick shutter speed is the effect it seems to have on my little Owen.

For whatever reason, the sound of the camera click turns Owen into a miniature-sized little boy version of "I Dream of Jeannie." It is quite remarkable. He can perfectly time his blinks with every click of the camera. He also adds a head nod for emphasis and sometimes his own little personal sound effect. I think he'd add the arm motions too, but he's usually too busy eating crackers.

He finds himself hilarious.

(So do I. Which is probably why he keeps doing it.)
