"Say, 'Cheese.'" Actually, don't.

At the beginning of the of the month I covered the Butler High School girls basketball team's amazing run.

I wasn't at their at the last game unfortunately because of scheduling but spent time at their last practice.

This frame was a one-framer. What's a one-framer you ask? It's where you only have one shot to pull it off.

The next frame her friend said, "Hey, this dude is trying to take your picture."

I understand to the common person they treat photography as stop and smile at the camera. However, "saying cheese," or "say kimchee," for those in a Korean household, won't be allowed for my future family. In fact, I plan to have a say cheese  "swear jar." While this is tounge-in-cheek rhetoric, I still loathe the phrase. The phrase that spoils real moments.

"Say, 'Cheese?'"


Actually, don't.


In fact, never use that idiom again if you don't want to have real moments in your family album or on your wall.


Happy moment hunting,

Corey Perrine
