You can always tell when someone else has taken the picture - magically there is light, shape, and sharpness to the image.  I'm getting better at using the photo app on the IPhone - at least it's not a picture of my finger.
The photo below was taken by the organizer of the Spring 2014 college fair, McKee's College Advisor and guidance counselor - Ms. Jennifer Miller Pecora.
