How to fool a camera while pushing 60 years old

I have found the older I get, the more the camera lies on me. Yes, I know, people will say, its a camera, it can't lie, but women know the ugly truth. Cameras lie, not by words of course but by the little images we have so much hope for when we press the  button to take a picture. The camera adds wrinkles, pot bellies and weight. At least 20 pounds is average, usually more. It also lies and makes us APPEAR to be much older.  By having someone takes lots and lots of pictures of you, eventually a few pictures of what you really look like will slip through.
These were taken at Sycamore Park yesterday. Yes, enough shots and the camera can be fooled.

And that would be way I always try to be the one taking the pictures.

Agreed, can you imagine how much money in film and developing, glad the digital age has arrived.
