During the RedHawks home opener I noticed a man shooting video between innings with two phones. He said one phone for himself  and the other was for someone else.

Then the next day I took a photo of grandparents shooting a picture of their granddaughter during the Oklahoma City Museum of Art’s Family Day.

This made me think about all the pictures we take of people taking pictures and video, or getting their pictures taken for keepsakes. Seems like I have done this a lot recently. I did a quick search of our archives for these types of photos and found a variety. Here are a few different ways we have photographed people taking photographs.

Others were of people taking pictures of someone they have never met but watch all the time.
