Silly buggers :-)

So I woke up one morning a couple of weeks ago, down in California to visit my nieces.  Zoe & Naomi came downstairs to watch some TV.  I broke out the camera, started taking pictures…and all hell broke loose.  They thought the flash was all sorts of funny.  Red-eye reduction was on, so it fires a few times rapidly at reduced power before firing at full power to take the picture.  They’d giggle and run away, then run back toward me.  I’d take another picture, they’d giggle and run away again, then run back again.  Eventually I just pressed the shutter down halfway to trigger the preflash without taking a picture.  They still giggled, ran away, and ran back.  It’s amusing, what three-year-olds will find funny. :-)
