Life continues past the months of June, July, and August and so must the counselors of Day Camp.

Why I Sometimes Hate This Job

Not just the MH camera job, but camera jobs in particular can be kind of trying for me. It all depends on the subject. A little kid with a broken arm and raccoon face paint might still smile broadly for the camera. Some subjects, such as Montana in this video, tend to cramp up reflexively when they realize the camera's on.

So first you've got Dash noticing the camera and making a face. Montana notices Dash making a face and asks, "What was that about?" The next part is priceless and kind of defines the agony. She notices the camera, grimaces like she's passing a stone, and says, "Oh .... " From that point on, Montana is painfully aware of the camera and forced me to cut carefully around four connections with the camera just to preserve a cute shot of a kid climbing into la casa de bounce. Earnin' that MH pay today!

P.S. For those totally uninterested in my whining, check it out: bounce house in front of the auditorium!

Ha. Nothing beats a camera as agent of embarassment.

Sweet. Nice to see a little piece of what's going on at camp while I'm down here in Costa Rica. Yeah baby, I'm checking the blog from the hotel computer and wanted to say what's up. Back to the beach. Later ya'll.

Sweet. But I guess Montana will always be better memorialized in still pictures. She's just got that model look, unless its a video camera...
