I always offer to take their photo first if I see one is taking a photo of the other one with some background scenery. I cross my fingers and say "Yes!" if they ask if we would like them to take ours. In our cabin or in a public room where there is someplace to place the camera, I take a timed photo. Sometimes it works, sometimes it does not. At times, I take a photo of myself in a mirror with the camera at belly button locale so you can see my face. I'm always waving (with the other hand) in that one!
