It was time to leave the house (for lunch at Jim’s Cheesesteak and the airport) and I still hadn’t captured the family portrait I needed to take home with me. John was making a home-repair call, so while Rachel swung Oscar to maintain his good humor for the picture, I snapped off a few shots to test the camera’s white balance.
That last sentence was to give you the impression, though false, that I know anything at all about a camera’s white balance. I only know the words because Mauri keeps telling me I need to adjust the camera’s white balance.
On Rachel’s upswing I caught what turned out to be my very best Oscar shot.
