Re: This made me cry first and then made me get out my camera.
It did make me cry. As an adult orphan whose parents (both them) were always behind the camera I make a point of getting in the pictures. I wish I had taken more before kids- some of my favorites of my parents were before I was born. I have tons of pictures of me, my aunt (she's only a year older than me) and my cousin, but very few with my mother or father. I always look at pictures from the view- if I die my children will cherish them no matter how I looked or felt about myself. I don't photograph well, but I won't hide from the camera because I know it won't matter to them. It sure doesn't matter to me when I look at the few pictures I have of my parents.
