I have been all of these! My favorite is the squat..exercise while photographing! Have recently decided not to be the packrat and never was one for zombieing! Thanks for the chuckle this morning!

Carol said...

The problem with the squat is getting up again! But, as we all know, thats what the tripod is for!

This is so great. Put a big smile on my face. I resonated with the Ninja!

Deanna said...

Giggle, giggle, I certainly recognize many of these positions, but the squat is becoming less used the older I become. I think I lean more toward the bummer!!

Oh, Carol, what a way to put a smile on our faces this Monday morning! I know I've could have been caught using a lot of these positions but, like Deanna, the squat is becoming less and less possible and I tend to be the bummer. Hey, I AM the bummer! What a fun post!

That "bum" mer looks familiar! Hilarious post. Thanks so much Carol. Really needed this.

Cathy said...

Oh this just made me laugh! I am that "bum" mer for sure! Great post Carol!

Kim Stevens said...

This is so great, has me grinning from ear to ear! I'm pretty sure my neighbors have seen me in most of these and one person even asked me if I was okay one day! rofl!! :)

This is priceless!!

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! And, I recognize the bum-mer and the squatter. I tried squatting after watching she-who-must-not-be-named but I wobble when I do that. I'll confess to bum-ming sometimes but mine? Well, it's totally unique and unflattering. Let's just say it does not show off my best feature. Very fun post and a great way to start our week! Thanks, Carol.

Oh my goodness this made me laught so hard. I loved it and I've been in a few of those positions myself from time to time.

Carol said...

Thanks for getting the joke, all - hope I haven't insulted anyone! You probably all have a few of me, at least - feel free to post them!

I get the biggest kick out of daughter Kelsey's face at the end. I can hear her "Oh Mom!!!" all the way from New Jersey!

Barb said...

Love your post! I've assumed all these poses and more.

Carol this is so cute! Yup, I must say I've been in all of these positions! I also love KI's face while Momma lays in the grass! Haha

Cathy H. said...

You have made my day! Fantastic post!

AFishGirl said...

Fabulous! Oh, I laughed! Great shots.

kelly said...

oh my gosh carol...this is awesome. I recognize myself literally, but also figuratively. and it makes me smiling knowing that I'm not the only one caught in hilarious positions trying to get a shot!
