nostalgia ~ Before Selfie!

nostalgia5

Before the Smartphones came into existence…

Before the love-hate phenomenon called Selfie was invented…

the only way to take a Selfie – individual or group (wonder what was it called then!) – is to set the timer of a camera, focus on the subjects (Mrs & Jr Swamy in this case, with space left on the right for Swamy), press the shutter, run like hell and take the place, pose and pray the focus didn’t change before the shot was taken! Now imagine doing this with a film camera :O

Anyway, this pre-Selfie era group selfie (is it Groupie!) was taken using a Canon Digital Point & Shoot camera (bought at a duty free shop in Changi airport, during one of Swamy’s business trips) whose resolution was…

hold your breath… and puhleeeze don’t laugh hysterically…

5 megapixels!

Though Mr & Mrs Swamy are posing with their megawatt smile, hoping to get the shot right (who knows how many iterations it took), Jr in the middle (must’ve been only a few months old) must’ve been really wondering “Why is Dad running and falling near me.. again & again.. when Mom is quietly lying down beside me, frowning & smiling, alternatively?”
