    I was walking to my son's middle school orchestra concert earlier this evening, E-P2 with my day old Panny 25 slung over one shoulder, my tripod case on the other. I passed a 5 year old (or so) boy on his bike, who stopped to gawk at me (funny short guy in suit). As I passed, he called out "are you an autograph?" followed quickly by stern mumbling from his sister, and then "I mean, are you a photograph?". That bought a smile.

    Isn't that great? Teach them while they're young. When I told the boy that I was on my way to take pictures of my son's concert, he said he thought that was cool. I had to control myself from saying "well, what's even cooler is this 25mm lens, let me tell you about its specs...." Maybe I'll wait until he's six.:smile:
