A Click In Time...

.....would not result in this post.

Time: Roughly a year ago.
Occasion: Abhi visits USA.

Characters:

Tourist: Abhi
Guide: Me
Stooges: Sharma (Amit) & Pals.

The plan was to give Abbs the touristy outlook of NYC. And have Pals and Sharma repeatedly say whatever I am doing sucks! After hours of walking around we reach Times Square in the early hours of the evening. And at first Abhi gets all hyper and like a true blood tourist clicks anything which blinks. But after a while we are all bored. Which is when our eyes fall on this fantabulously beautiful girl. The dreamy kinda female. The one you could wrap up and keep with you forever. So the evil minds with nothing to do, Abhi and me decide we need to photograph Gods work of art.



Attempt No. 1



All I got was Abhi. The girl (yes, the beautiful blonde damsel in blue - hidden the bottom left corner) turned around at the right time!!

Me: "Damn! I need to get a better shot man"
Abhi: "No no, dont make it so obvious. Lets act like tourists. Here, gimme the camera and let me click the NASDAQ sign."



Touristy Snap No. 1



I dont need to descibe this snap, do I?




Attempt No. 2



This was the best snap. Till her brother decides to get in the way. Oh well, Abhi says it was her boyfriend. I like to believe it was her brother. I didnt see him stick his tongue down her throat. So its her brother! FullStop.


Since Abhi wanted to make this look as original as possible in case the NYPD decide to nab us and flip through his digital camera, we had to take....




Touristy Snap No. 2



Its Pals, making a demons face. Sharma, making a normal face. Me, thinking I have it all figured out on how to get her snap. And the NYPD car, which almost got Abbs running for cover. And, the NASDAQ sign.


And then came the last and final....




Attempt No. 3



This one was a smart move. I waited. Waited long. And then finally came the moment when the Goddess of Beauty posed for a snap for someone else. Seizing this opportunity, I took one myself (and almost got caught).

Only, the snap came out to be shaky/hazy. And she didnt end up looking the Goddess she was. Sigh!


Anyone wanna pose for my 2007 calendar?

#Iyer: Ahhh.... I could so marry her. But I like that.... beauty 'lying' in the lens of the beholder. Why doesnt it lie when I click Bird?

#Anjali: I am not married. I would not want to lose my license to flirt with you. You see, when some guy asks me if I am married, I say yes, in case he would not have 'straight' intentions. When I girl asks, I always say 'No', coz hopefully she has some intentions =D

#Abhi: Actually we do have her on Video. Next time, I walk up and talk to her.... and u video record when she slaps me!

#KJ: PLease read my response to Anjali

#Lovemarks: Now, what is 'naystea' in clicking Gods work of art?

#Sonia: The resolution baby! The cell phone camera has a low resolution.... u cant blow it up!! (err... no pun intended)

#Menagerie: Did you just call me sick?? :@
Ok, He WAS her boyfriend. I am sure things must have changed since she saw me.... I am sure she is prolly staring at my foto which she secretly photographed!

#Iyer: Nah, thats the effect of alcohol.

#Lovemarks: There. Now you are learning the right things!

#Idea: You have no idea how my hidden camera was working when I met ya!
Anyways, the post above is nothing but an appreciation towards Gods creativity and honoring his mastery of design.

#Menagerie: BAH!! watch your words lady!! I'll click you when I swing by for F1 and write up a horrible post on you!!! :P

I really don't think it's her brother but what harm is there is assuming it is!
