Photo of the Day #1650

As the three of us watched The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, I made some botched attempts to discreetly photograph Leo and Lenna. Leo has a knack for putting on a grin whenever the lens is pointed his way, and eventually I gave up on any semblance of subtlety. Whenever the two of them looked away, I would take a photo; then they would look back, laugh, look away, and I’d take another. This naturally culminated in a hyperawareness of their roles as photographic subjects, which almost transcends that self-conscious falsehood of posed photos and loops back to natural behavior.

My friends are very kindly about putting up with these photos. I still don’t know how I’d act if someone else had a camera on me every time we were together.
