It's often better to get a photograph of someone who isn't looking. People a drilled almost from birth to "SMILE" at the Camera. Most of these smiles are as artificial as soft-drink sweetener.

I struggle to look natural in a picture. It is practically impossible to take a picture of my niece Jayna without her talking or making a face. I've taken hundreds of pictures of her and I have two that capture her pretty face.

Jilda, on the other hand, is a natural in front of a camera. It's difficult to take a bad picture of her. I guess that's why Seventeen Magazine published photographs of her when she was in fashion college in the early 70s.

I love taking pictures and on rare occasions when I snap a picture that resonates, it feels good.

Today was a writing day. I spent most of the time cooped up in my office slamming out words.

Right now, I plan to pour me a glass of Merlot and kick my feet up for a while.
