Photo Hunters ~ Technology


Today is a fun theme in Photo Hunters. There are so many directions one can take with this. I chose one of my favorite pictures. It's my Mom talking to my oldest, her first grandchild, on Skype. There was just something about seeing the headphones on her head, a grandma using modern technology to talk to her granddaughter. It makes me smile.


For more technology themed photos or to join in see Photo Hunters.

Susanne, One of our family members is allergic to all poultry, so we don't serve it on holidays. That's why there was no turkey.

Makes me smile too. It's so normal, yet unexpected.

Cool! I worked in college with an older lady that used one of those every day. Just before I finished college I had to teach her how to use a computer mouse. Technology affects us all... young and old!

This is endearing to me because I can so imagine my 85 year old father looking like this with the headphones. He doesn't own a computer, so it's never going to happen. But I can see why this moved you. I love, love, love this photo. :-)

As an expat I can't live without skype. My father still has a hard time using it, but is slowing getting better at it.
