I never have carried my camera into a restaurant. I'm not saying there's anything wrong with that, it's just not something I have ever done before. Not only have I never taken a picture of myself while looking into a mirror, I have never before taken a picture of myself in a bathroom. But she dared me! Friends, I had no choice, I tell ya!
I took the first one at home, just to get the feeling of looking into a mirror and snapping away. Actually, this should count twice as it's really two mirrors--a big one with a white frame and a side mirror that's a medicine cabinet.
With this experience under my belt, I took a deep breath, along with my camera, and off Johnny and I went to have lunch at Olive Gardens, one of his favorite restaurants.
You can see him munching here. Still to come is his order of spaghetti and sausage.
Soup, salad, and breadsticks are my choices when we go here. I don't care for the food. I only go here because I am such a wonderful wife! (humble, too!)
Then came The Moment of Truth. Dare I? Do you for a moment doubt me? I walked into the ladies room, camera hidden in my pants pocket. I smiled as I spotted the handicap area. It has a door! I can take this picture while I'm still in a private place! No one will ever see.
However, I was so nervous that my hand was shaking. I took several, and this was the best of the lot.
When I realized that it was blurry, and that the closed door could be clearly seen, I stepped outside into the large public area, a bit more determined to meet the challenge. The door opened and in came a lady with her child. They took one look at me, camera in the air, and hurried into the nearest stall! I quickly snapped this second picture and left. I didn't take time to adjust the camera, and it's not very well lit. But if you look closely, you can see the absence of the handicap grab rail, proving that I DID IT in a public restroom. (Theme music from Rocky to be loudly played here.)
Now some of you may think me chicken, but at least I tried. Later, I
When I went to get my Bathroom Beauty Snappers picture, I discovered the bathroom had two inefficient lights overhead. I stepped under the lights, in front of the lights. I snap, snapped away! This turned out the best picture from the six shots I took. Bathrooms are dark, people!
Oh! Once again, a lady with a child in tow, walked in while I was snap, snap, snapping away. However, now I'm cool, so I merely stated, "I lost a bet!" The lady laughed and moved along. You can't call me chicken. However, you may say I'm a rotten photographer.
