Pretty cool! How'd you burst the balloon and trigger the camera or flash?

Neil,

This has got me thinking about creating a project to get my girls more involved in the actual picture taking process.

My youngest (3 years), just last week, out of the blue, picked up her Sesame Street digital camera and asked me to change the batteries, and then took my picture. (Made me so proud -- <grin>).

My oldest (9 years), is already planning out gymnastic poses and background ideas for our next "photoshoot" <grin>.

Not sure what. Maybe I'll present them with the problem and see what they come up with.

Take care,
Glen
