I am a camera
Late last night I got an email from my Facebook friend Brendan asking me to bring my camera to church today and take pictures. I said I would.
"Of what?" I asked him.
The answer came back: Of the altar and the blessing.
Whatever. So there I am at church, bright and early, and I have my camera. And instead of sitting in my usual inconspicuous pew I sit in the front pew. I did not like sitting in the front pew, I realized. I felt everyone was looking at me. Plus it made it more noticeable when I took pictures. What if people got mad because I was taking pictures and not praying?
Well, I said I would take pictures. So I took one.
Now I started getting uneasy. What other pictures was I expected to take? What blessing, exactly, had Brendan been talking about? Why hadn't I asked more questions?
Not wanting to be remiss I took this picture.
I adjusted my flash and I think this picture came out in better focus than the others.
La la la la la la.
I have no idea if this is what Brendan wants. I think I am better at writing about Leonard Pennario than taking pictures at church.
But when I got home I charged up my camera battery.
Next time I get an assignment, I will be ready!
