Democratic National Convention

My mom just sent me a cell phone picture of the view from her seat in the Pepsi Center at the Democratic National Convention.

Pepsi Center DNC

This is awesome for several reasons:
a) Dude, my mom took a picture with her cell phone and then managed to send it to me.
b) My mom and dad are at the DNC, and they got to see Hillary move to nominate Obama by acclamation.
c) The picture is all swirly and modern looking.
c) Yeah, that's all I can think of, but the list seemed to need another point.

UPDATE @8:27:

My dad's iPhone takes a much better picture than my mom's Razr.

Hooray for democracy! Your mom actually sent a picture mail? I still can't get my dad to even believe in text messages.

OH MY GOODNESS! I try to teach her that every time I am home! I'm so proud of her!

(PS I hope your head feels better!)

I forcibly taught my parents computer skills so I wouldn't have to communicate with them in person.

So jealous of your parents - I'm glad they made it to the DNC. Where's your mom's blog, telling us all the stories? I mean come on, she's on facebook now AND sending photo messages?

My mom can barely figure out how to take a picture and send it, too. Parents are so much work.

What cool pics! I am so proud of your parents for you.

Great photo! My parents would NEVER be able to take a photo AND send it. Wow!

Parents? You guys. I don't even know how to take a picture and send it with a phone.

It might help if I had a phone with a camera.

Also, that's awesome your parents were there. All those people intimidated me, but it was cool to know it was going on right close by.

Hi Mar-see-ah,
My mum doesn't own a cell phone, I had to explain email to her, and she is worried about the t'internet.

I SO prefer your mum's photo to your dad's. True, you dad's sums up the event, but your mum's photo is accidentally BEAUTIFUL.....

And accidental beauty is a thing to wonder.....

I'm so glad someone else admitted to not knowing how to take pictures with a phone. I just figured out text messates a few weeks ago. And even then, I have to respond to a text, I don't know how to send one on my own.
