I just have a little story to tell you about this photo here.
It was Little Bear's first flight and he had done great the whole way.
He had just enjoyed a late dinner here and there are some remnants on his face to prove it.
The plane was descending into Los Angeles, they had dimmed the cabin lights and I suddenly realized that I had not taken a photo of his first time on a plane. So I reached under the seat and took out my camera.
I leaned back and pushed the button.
Flash, flash, strobe, strobe, flash, flash!!!
Finally, the camera took this super cute picture of Little Bear.
Then a male flight attendant came running back to our 38th aisle.
He stopped at my seat and yelled-
Ma'am! PUT THAT AWAY!
I THOUGHT THERE WAS A FIRE BACK HERE.
I am so sorry- I didn't know I couldn't take pictures!
Well, I was quite surprised. I mean, they never said anything about no flash photography being allowed.
I thought about asking him if I could take a picture of him for my blog on my way out, but I didn't really want to get arrested. They are a little touchy on the airlines these days- understandably.
Instead, as we exited last with our crew in tow, I apologized for scaring him and told him I had no idea that photography wasn't allowed.
He said- It is an electronic device!
The pilot looked at me and said- it is okay ma am.
I'm still glad I got that picture though.
