The Husband Histrionics



My husband bought a new camera- Nikon D5300. You can imagine what happens when guys get their gadgets. 

One fine evening he decided to make me the guinea pig of his portrait experiment. After innumerable Look here, look there, open your eyes,Dont scowl, whats with your hair, he finally came closer to me and said,

I think your picture would look better with make up on   Tang!!!!
 If only my eyes could emit death rays. The nerve!!


************

The other day, he came running to me and said, “Take this in your mouth and lie down."  I was gobsmacked for a while. It was then I noticed a round yellow lemon in his hand.

What kind of dumb photography is this, I asked him controlling my temper.

Babes it's creativity, you won't understand. Yeah right, a whole lemon in my mouth!!

************


One fine evening while I was cooking, he announced from the other room.

Be prepared to be blown out of your mind. I went there to see a huge pile of dry leaves and stems on our pristine white table and he with a triumphant smile looking at his camera.  


Ohh dear whos gonna clean all this!!

 This is what he clicked

I am sure you too must have such tales :) Cmon share :D

  6. I know guys who click pictures busily at functions like birthday party,New Year day celebrations ,Diwali etc.When they send finally through Picasa,I would observe there are no pictures without their wives occupying prominent place in the frames.So you are lucky to get your hubby's attention.You could have put the picture with lemon in the mouth!!!

  9. Men go through these loony phases. In the end, his picture is really good. I might have had to smack him if he would have told me I needed makeup. Ha the nerve! ♥

  18. I remember when I was in high school (late 1990s), my father got a new Yashica camera, with all the zoom, focus stuff. And we the family were the victims of his enthusiasm. Even the guests were not spared. And that was the era of the camera roll.

  19. I can feel your pain, girl! My husband is extremely fond of photography and is very, very attached to his cameras and their associated paraphernalia. But maybe after being married to me for close than 25 years, he has learnt what not to do in the name of creativity :) Trust me, he will get better with age :)

  32. i would have loved to see the second pic rather than the third.. maybe reserve it for the L letter.. :P
    like shilpa, I am the photographer in the house, so i can empathize with him... i would also say its better than watching games on tv...
