A shout out to the "mystery camera person" at periol's party...

IMG_0073
Originally uploaded by Axel Larsson.
At one point during Peter's party an unidentified female, who will henceforth be referred to as "mystery camera person" asked to borrow my camera. She snapped the picture at right, thanked me, returned the camera, and walked into the next room. At no point during this was there a discussion of where I was going to be posting the pictures, or even if the pics were going to show up on the internet at all...

Of course, I immediately consulted shmivejournal who had witnessed what was happening and was wondering the same thing I was.. No doubt Jay's powers of over analysis would lead us to possibilities I would never have considered...

We figured there were three possibilities:
  • She would merely ask Peter who I was and where I would be posting the pics.. This is the most mundane possibility.

  • She didn't care if she got the picture, merely that it was taken.. That.. somewhere, on the internet or elsewhere this image existed was enough for her.

  • She had Google superpowers that would make mere mortals and geeks alike quiver with fear... Being plugged into The Matrix, she would immediately become aware when the image was posted online, if not having used her mental powers to pull the image off the camera's memory card directly..

Well, whoever you are, whereever you are, Mystery Camera Person, here is your picture.. Submitted via the "I borrowed your camera and don't know who you are" lost and found... We only ask that you use the image for good and not for... well.. Perhaps stick to the lighter side of the varying shades of evil...

My favorite is the second option. She just decided that this picture needed to be taken -- the equivalent of writing your name or obscenities on a bathroom wall and then never returning.

Agreed

I'm a fan of such notions.

I broke the dam.

Not only do I suspect she just thought the picture needed to be taken, I think she was absolutely correct. What a great shot.

Also, if you remember what she was wearing, I could probably tell you who she was.
