Put Your Camera Away

Some people think it's all about them. Kelley and I went for a walk today and were amazed at the number of cars stuck - and even abandoned - in the middle of the streets in our neighborhood. It was such an unusual sight that I decided to take a picture.

Now there were at least a dozen disabled cars within 50 years, so the idea that one guy thought I was taking HIS picture was pretty ridiculous - except for the fact that I actually WAS taking a picture of him. I mean, he was trying to drive into a snowbank that was higher than his bumper.


Guy in the car: Hey, put your camera away!
Me: I'm not taking your picture.
Guy in the car: What are you taking pictures of, then?
Me: The snow.
Random guy 1: You're not in Hollywood!
Random guy 2: You're not a rap star, nobody wants your picture!
Kelley: Ha ha ha! (pointing at the guy in the car)
Random guy 3: That girl's pointing at you and laughing at you! Ha ha!

Hope your picture taking doesn't get someone angry enough to go after you.

Ha!

I used to work for a newspaper, and now I work in marketing. I had someone recently ask me if the paper got releases from people whose photo we took before we published it.

"Um, no."

"Really? I mean, you don't have to get their permission?"

"Yeah. No. They're in public."

"Wooow."

"Right. Public."

Also, he was gunning it? Really?

HAHAA I think he needs glasses... to actually try driving over the snow and thinking that she was pointing at you instead of himself is quite an achievement... :D
I've just started so I'm still not getting the full grasp of 'blogging'.. but I think your blog is pretty awesome. :)
