Iâ€™m, not hating,far from it.I respect the whole concept of photography.Given the right setting Iâ€™d pose with Angelina Jolie if Bradd let me.But thatâ€™s it.I would not go all out on the whole thing the way many people do.It never ceases to amuse me(yes,I am actually a very to amuse person…which is why Breakfast Shows hold some sort of appeal) the lengths people go through for pictures.
I asked someone what they hoped to achieve from this,whether the answers to lifeâ€™s greatest mysteries would be revealed within the flash of bright lights or whether she had actually chanced upon the secret to youth.I desperately wanted some sort of â€œdeepâ€ reason that would leave me in a state of awe or at the very least pondering the intricacies of film and the like. She summed it up in just the one word-JUST!
Suffice to say,my afternoon was killed and I consoled myself with some asinine game whose objective had me trying to guess what the next Ebonies play would be called.I didnâ€™t see Obnoxious Abomination coming.It just didnâ€™t make as much sense as the other titles. For the record,you can really find yourself in an Inextricable Dilemma wherein the outcome will without a doubt be an Excruciating Conundrum.The perfect example of such a situation would be sitting through any of their TV seriesâ€¦and I use the word â€œSeriesâ€ in the broadest sense of the word.
Donâ€™t Worry,Be Happy
Someone claims that getting your picture taken is some sort of anti-depressant.Apparently if you are feeling low and walk into a studio you will emerge shortly afterwards in such high spirits.Two things clash with this theory.I have never seen anyone smiling in those mugshots the police in â€œoutside countriesâ€ take in the movies.Secondly alcohol is reputed to lift spirits faster than photos,seeing as there is no time lag as they â€œdevelopâ€ alcohol.
There is simply no other way of putting this.People supposedly take pictures so that they can remember how they looked at some point in their lives.This prompts the question,â€œThen what?â€.How exactly is this going to impact your life or the great hereafter?
You can not â€œjustâ€ take pictures.There has to be some reason,heck throw in some sort of vanity or narcissistic spiel.â€œI figured I looked incredibly good that day and seeing as I described myself in that chatroom where people go to meet their future spouses as looking drop dead gorgeous,this was idealâ€¦now obba where do I get blue eyesâ€¦â€
There are a few questions that are exceptions to the â€œjustâ€ excuse.You can answer some questions with the one word.Questions such as,â€œWhy do you say all those nasty things about Jennifer Lopez?â€
The issue here is not so much the fact that pictures are taken.People need to make a living,Winnie Munyenga needs stuff to talk about..the issue is the fact that people will actually go to the ATM,withdraw money walk past all these takeaways and airtime joints and get a picture takenâ€¦Just for Just!!
