SNAP

For a change of pace this weeks Tuesday Tale is written to a picture prompt of Cowboys. So let me know what you think.



Janice had no idea how hot it would be the day of the photo shoot.  She had protested from the start, although she needed the money. She was a landscape photographer and now because of funds she was taking pictures of half-naked cowboys for a new record label.  Shrugging her shoulders at the thought she continued to take pictures.

“I want SEXY” said her new client.  “This is the newest all-male country/pop group to hit the scene in years and I want the picture to make a definite impact on all the ladies out there!”  So here Janice was taking shots all day in the Rio Grande Gorge area.  Trying to make these guys into the statement that is needed for their album cover which featured their hit single, “Riding Hard”

Janice smiled at the slender cowboy named Derek.  She had put him in the back so he didn’t stick out like a sore thumb among the others who were bigger than he was physically.  It was funny when he introduced himself because he had the deepest sounding voice of them all and yet he was the smallest in stature.  So each shot she took was angled in such a way that it would allude one’s sight from what they were really looking at.

She asked them to unbutton their pants and just try relaxing. They were there going on 3 hours and the heat was starting to get to them all. Especially Janice, she needed that one shot and so far each shot she had taken, and there were hundreds at this point, didn’t take make the bill. She was about ready to give up when she looked into the camera’s eye and there it was the shot she had been looking for all day, Snap!

  2. This is a great short and could lead somewhere, too. Love how she is so focused on the job the guys don't get to her. You even have their hit song. You sucked me in here right away. Well done, Tai.
