Camera avoider and the rest of the dumb boys…


This is John.  He is a friend of a friend, who I knew a tiny bit through playing WoW.  I actually got to meet him when we all went out a few weeks ago.

John 1

John has the uncanny knack of being able to keep his face away from a camera lens at ALL times.  I think during the entire escapade I was able to get TWO pictures that included his face.  TWO out of the few hundred photos I took that day….two.


Might I add that I was taking this pictures from at least 200 ft. away from him, and oh did he look in my direction a lot.  However, he is like a camera shutter psychic and knew when the click was about to happen.  He almost ALWAYS turned his head.  Jerk.

However, I got my payback.  The few pictures I have of his whole face he looks like this:


Catch any bugs in that trap of yours John?  HUH?!  Did you?

On another note…WHAT is up with this?


Is this the outdoor version of the “gay chair”?  For those who may never have heard of the gay chair, it’s when two guys go to a movie together and leave an empty seat in between them, so that other people won’t think they are gay by sitting together.  Totally stupid.  I mean if I go to a movie with a girlfriend, I usually sit right next to them…UNLESS we both have boobs so big we are going to have to use the other girls boobs as an armrest, then we might sit apart.

Seriously, doesn’t it look like they have an exact measured distance between them?  What is UP with that?

Dumb boys.

  1. lol.  My hubby and my brother will always turn their heads if I try to get their picture.  I seriously have to catch them off guard

  2. @Blue_ButterflyBaby – I hate it when grown ups hide from a camera.  I mean it is stupidly hard to take pictures of kids on the go, so when adults do it I want to smack them.  I didn’t know him well enought o smack him though…I must get to know people better so the smacking can commence!!  Ha!

  3. UGH I hate getting my picture taken unless I’m purposely trying to get one that is acceptable to be put online.  Then its about 40 or 50 to get even 1 good one.I thought you were referring to the boat or the stick or whatever it is going through Buddy’s neck in the middle!!  What’s up with that?!

  4. Haha that’s so funny!  He’s adorable though. It’s cool that you got to go meet your friends and stuff!

  5. HA! Dumb boys… make a good shot though. lol I am able to avoid a camera too… that’s why I prefer to be behind one. lol

  6. I thought the same thing about the stick, lol. But I see what you mean. 

  7. @newbie2005 – @bethro78 – I tried to edit out the stick….However, it made half his fce look all melted no matter how many times I tried it with however many photoshop tools.  After an hour, I said SCREW IT and posted it like it was.

  8. i also try to avoid cameras by being the photographer. 🙂  I’m really bad at picture taking, so if i do let someone take my picture, i usually cheese-out and look like a small child who just drank a double-shot of espresso frappuccino.  …strange talent i suppose.anyway…the space thing you mentioned is hilarious!  and that shot captures it perfectly!  i’ve heard its the same in the bathroom…girls tend to take the middle stall, but guys tend to take the first or last so there’s at least another one between if another guy comes in.  isn’t it hilarious?!  p.s. i definitely empathize with your boob problem in theaters also;)

  9. Boys are pretty funny.  I was actually thinking you were referring to the guy in the middle that looks like he has a big spear or something going through his neck.*sparkle
