Racist Camera! No, I did not blink... I'm just Asian!

We got our Mom a new Nikon S630 digital camera for Mother's Day and I

was playing with it during the Angels game we were at on Sunday.

 

As I was taking pictures of my family, it kept asking "Did someone

blink?" even though our eyes were always open.

 

Sheesh! RACIST! :P
