Just sorting out the photos which I plan to use when adding new material to the site and I notice one thing….the stupid hand signals that kids use when a photo is being taken. Why do they insist on doing this? I wish I had an answer as I would put a stop to it….does it annoy me??? YES. Is it necessary to make these gestures? Obviously is. Point in print below:
Yes, I get the message that they think they are funny and cute….doesn’t cut the mustard with me though, not funny and not cute. I think it ruins what would be nice photos and there were so many photo’s that I didn’t put in for that reason. After doing a bit of research online, I discovered that the signal Kye does constantly is a signal as follows: “Originated in American Sign Language used by deaf and hearing culture. Done by extending the thumb, index finger, and little finger while the middle and ring finger touches the palm. Informal of love.” Little do I think that he even knows what it means.
I have decided that they like seeing their faces on the website, so I’ve said that if they continue with their signals they they won’t be appearing on here anymore. I’ve had my rant. Maybe I should just start photo bombing their photo’s with a hand gesture they really wouldn’t appreciate seeing!!!!!
