15 seconds of local fame!

Who’d a thought! I’m on the Jumbotron at a Seahawks game!

Well, not really, but kind of... Yesterday (6/25/15) we're at Westfield Southcenter Mall in Tukwila, Washington. I’m teaching Mobile Communication Boot Camp, a.k.a. hashtag #mobilecomcamp for a group of local Realtors®.

I’m having a blast! We’re working our way through the mall and this segment of the class is about using images in the context of #location #lifestyle and #community as a web presence and personal brand strategy. So there’s a bunch of us wandering from store to store shooting lots of photos with our smartphones.

I'm on the Jumbotron!

Half the fun doing this 3 clock hour class is noticing some of the people around us and their reactions.

"Who are these people? Are they foreign tourists? They're taking photos of everything!"

As I catch up to my teammate, Jill Bell, she's taking a photo through the front window of the Made in Washington Store. There’s a really cool Lego Seahawks game displayed and it has its own (mini) Jumbotron displaying camera shots of the field and players like it's a live game.

Ha ha... I was caught in the reflection and ended up on the big screen. My 15 seconds of local fame! :O)

Hi Anna Banana Kruchten - AZ Top Banana of Real Estate! ... I so totally love photo accidents! We did have a blast! And what was especially fun about this one was a group that (kinda sort of) avoids social media and into the class they're Yelping, Instagraming, and Tweeting up a storm!

Well, how cool is that.  It has never happened to me. . .or if it has, the moment wasn't captured to pixels!
