Portrait in Parts

The sequence above is Mabel's photo-portrait of Grandpa, made with the heavy SLR camera and its complicated manual controls. Like all tiny children of the present, Mabel operates electronic gadgetry with spontaneous ability, the same way birds build nests.

When she had finished her top-down study of me (lingering on my Adam's-apple which she always pays particular attention to because it is so prominent and strange-looking) I turned the camera around and Mabel put on her camera-face for one quick portrait in return.
