Charlene: Here's a picture of Bob and the kids standing next to a canoe, taken with Bob's new digital camera. Here's the same shot cropped vertically on the computer...Here's the same shot zoomed in on the faces... Here's the same shot with the lake colored a different shade of blue... Here's the same shot with a kayak in place of the canoe... Here's the same shot with a border added... Here's the same shot in black and white... Here's the same shot with Leonardo Dicaprio's head put in instead of Bob's... Here's the same shot with cute word balloons over the kids' heads... Here's a shot of Bob suggesting that in my spare time I try all 600 editing options on each of our other 150 vacation photos before I "pop them into the albums". And here's a shot of a nice big truck taking Bob and all his electronic doodads far, far away for a little quiet reflection. The computer. One way or the other, simplifying life.
