Photo 79: ¡feliz cumpleaños!

This picture is as much fun for the story as it is for the image (which I like.)

Today I was eating dinner with some colleagues at Javier’s in Dallas when a lady at the table next to us put on this awesome hat. Having the camera with me, I quickly went to work to get some shots.  It turns out it was a birthday celebration for their grandma. She got a great kick out of me taking the photos which turned into this delightful shot.

I can’t remember for sure, but I don’t believe that any one at their table was taking pictures.

I pulled out my iPad and the camera connection kit, imported the photos onto the iPad, and was showing the photos to my colleagues.  I was offering to e-mail them the photos when one of them pulled out an iPad.  I asked them to hand it to me and I’d do the whole import thing right on the their iPad and won’t even have to e-mail it.  After handing the iPad back she started showing grandma the photos who looked on the edge of tears.

Anyway, I don’t think my words are adequately conveying the joy that I added to their evening just by being there with simple technology and being willing to share.  It was pretty awesome.

Then when we done eating, they also shared some pink lemonade birthday cake with us. mmmMMMmm cake.
