A Photography Corner Story

"Darn it," he said, "It's so cold here."

It was cold. Colder than the butt of a penguin in the Antarctic. But, what could he do? Barrie's always cold this time of year. Besides, with work, family, and all the annoying peons at "The Corner" he certainly couldn't take time off.

Damn peons he thought. Always with their pestering questions. And they all think they are the best photographers in the world. That very thought caused him to giggle somewhat uncontrollably. I should have called the forum "Peon Corner", he thought some more. He had to check his surroundings - were people watching him giggle? He should stop this nonsense and refocus on the important team meeting at hand. Maybe, he continued, he should just go home now and reconfigure the servers to display Peon instead of Photography. Those blundering fools with their point and shoot cameras and their overpriced megapixel behemoths. Those people don't even use manual mode.

He really needed to stop his mind from wandering. He was starting to giggle louder, and the boss was watching him again.

That night he sat at home, his lovely wife feeding him is favorite dinner. A 1.8 kilo extra rare steak, potatoes, and the obligatory 6 pack of Labatts. He was so lucky. Not everybody could get such a great serving wife, especially after "the accident". She did so much around the house without ever complaining. She was his rock. Perhaps he should take her out for....his mind started to wander again. Cold, cold Barrie. He needed out. But, where to go?

To be continued....

Re: A Photography Corner Story

He felt old. Why, just the other day he celebrated his birthday. Wow, he thought to himself, time flies when your alive. Work was still dragging him down. Those people, their projects, their budgets, and their petty squabbling all added up to very, very long days. Sometimes he wished he could dedicate himself full-time to the Corner, but those "photographers" don't pay well enough. Somehow they think new camera gear every year is more important.

Still, he was bored. But why? He truly enjoyed his job, and some of the old-timers at the Corner had actually turned out to be good friends. And, it was a major relief to finally find out that Spicoli was not the mad doctor he pretends to be. Giggle, he thought it would be funny if the Corner members actually found out that Spicoli collected Hello Kitty dolls. Maybe he should use that tidbit of information as leverage to get something nice. Nah....Spicoli's too nice. And so what if he collected dolls. It not as if he himself was without such vices, being a collector of Winnie-the-Pooh and figurines. But, what about all these other members of the Corner. This place was like a family to him, but he knew so little about them. Some of them could be nice folks too. Well....except that Grif guy. All he wants to do is drink beer and chase women around with his camera like he's some sort of paparazzi or something.

Maybe he should make an effort to get to know these people more. Maybe he should do more than post forum messages every few days.

Maybe he should...
