As often happens when you’re wandering around a tourist resort or attraction, you are approached and asked if you wouldn’t mind taking a photograph for somebody. Today was no different as we walked along the beach at the Little Island Park, Sandbridge just south of Virginia Beach. A charming young couple, Rico and Brooke, were taking pictures of each other beneath the fishing pier and asked if we could take a picture of them both.
Lorna was only too pleased to oblige and took a couple of photos with Rico’s iPhone. I wanted to know if there was a flash on the ‘phone and could he please turn it on. Rico laughed and asked why on earth would you want to use flash when it was bright daylight. Well, that was the wrong question to ask because what should have been a moment to take a picture turned in to a fifteen minute tutorial on the use of fill-in flash.
The young couple were good sports and took it all in good fun. We wish them both the best with their studies.
