This is a self-timer that I actually did yesterday at our friend's birthday party at a restaurant. The birthday gal, Clarisse is dressed in red at the far end of the table. She had 22 people at her party but this was before the rest of the crew came. There happened to be a tall side table across
from ours where I set the camera on for the 10 second self-timer. The first attempt didn't turn out at all and the second try cut the fellow off on the left and this is the third attempt where I set it on 18mm. I must have been thinking if I stood up straight behind my husband, the top of my head would be cropped off.... I didn't realize it would take in so much of the room... A very candid shot!!!

    I really like your daily journals!! Do you have a flexible mini-tripod? They work great in situations like this.

    Thank you Donald..My daily journal project of course are experimental pictures and there is always room for improvement...No, I do not have a flexible mini-tripod but I normally use a sturdy tripod for more stabilization for my camera. I could see the usefulness of a flexible mini-tripod if I had a lighter weight camera. Thanks for the suggestion anyway.

    To have so many subjects in the picture and have it come out this good is quite a feat, Andrea. I can imagine the comments by the third try. LOL

    Rob Roy has a sharp eye! I thought for a second that he had been there then saw the sign above that said Bobby Lee's ; ) Tell Clarisse Happy Birthday from me also! It looks like all of you are having a nice time at the party.
