I, um, took this photo just outside of Whole Foods early this evening, but it might be better said that the photo took me. I was in the midst of a text exchange with Ella and had come outside of the store because I wasn’t getting decent coverage inside. In between text messages, while waiting for her responses, I started messing with the camera settings on my cell phone, and then, bing, bang, boom, I took this picture.
Or, like I said, it took me.
You can tell from my expression that I’m trying to figure out something, right? I mean, I look pretty serious so I must be thinking hard (something like, “I wonder why I can’t get this camera to work.”) And as my family members have told me, shooting from below chin level up at a face leads to an unflattering double chin.
So just why am I posting something like this? It gave me a good excuse to call an entry “Accidents Will Happen,” a classic Elvis Costello song.
