I was looking through old family pics with my uncle. My uncle stumbled upon a photo of my grandad (he died when I was 1 years old) with my grandma where he was laughing in the photo. My uncle (the youngest son of my grandpa) then remarked. "Wow the old man is actually smiling".


By that comment what is my uncle implying about my grandfather as a person?

It means that he was either a very serious or a very grouchy person.

Could also mean he wasn't one to smile for a camera, I'm one of those.

It could also mean that he was self conscious about his smile, so he chose not to smile in pictures unless he thought something was funny.

I have a hard time smiling because of what CockneyRebel said ^ so my (very few) pictures are often strange looking because I'm the only one not smiling.
