Seeing cute photos online prompted me to do a light topic on this episode: silly faces. So we had some fun with that and pointed out that some of the best group photos happen when the photographer says, Okay, now everyone be silly! So I read a poem about making silly faces in pictures.
I showed photos, some old and some recent. I read a poem about what people in the future might say about our photos. In some of the old photos, as we know, people often were told not to smile because of the time it took to actually take the picture. But I took the opportunity to point out that when we see those pictures today, we wonder why they weren’t smiling, and we sort of wish they were. We also talked about remembering that when someone takes your picture, that’s something people in the future will see, maybe a hundred years from now. So we should ask ourselves what we’ll want them to see. Hopefully, we’ll want them to see happy smiles and, when the photographer says to cut loose, the silliest faces we can make. So enjoy Silly Faces. ❤️
