It takes a lot to make me speechless

Posted in Photography on July 10, 2010 by stephenjamesprice

I shot a wedding tonight and about halfway through the reception I took a quick restroom break. I was pulling the door open from the outside at the same time an elderly gentleman (approx. early seventies) was pushing it open from the inside. He stumbled forward a little. As he righted himself, he spotted the large camera hanging from my neck.

“You didn’t want a picture of that did you?” he asked.

I told him that I did not.

“Good,” he replied. “You don’t have a big enough lens.”

I struggled for the appropriate comeback as the door shut in my face. I could hear him laughing from the other side. I never did think of anything to say.
