Photographer…. Stalker…. Details, details.

Taking pictures of random strangers.

Candid shots.  Private moments.  Whispers of time discretely captured with a single push of the button.  How cool is that?

But me?  I’m a chicken.  “What if I get caught?  What if someone gets mad?”

Buck Buck Buck!

So guess what I did while wandering the grounds of Whalehead Club this Fourth of July?  I mustered up my courage and went in to full stealth mode.  (Much to the dismay of my daughter, who mumbled the word “Stalker” more times than I can count.)

Photographer…. Stalker….  Details, details.

The pictures?  I love them!  Here are a few of my favorite stalker moments, captured at Whalehead Club in Corolla, NC.

This is one of my favorite pictures.  What was he crying about?

This was the hardest shot for me to get.  I had to wait for her to take a bite without calling attention to myself.  With patience came success!

When I showed my son this picture, he told me I should get an email from the couple so I could send them the shot. Sheepishly, I approached them and said, “I just got a perfect photo of you (STALKER!)…. Would you like it?” As the young woman turned, I saw a) she was a ginger and b) she had an expensive camera on her hip. I breathed a sigh of relief.

Finally, my moment of FAIL.  Notice the crab trap stuck to the propeller?  Definitely picture worthy.  In my great excitement, I jumped up and started snapping.  A few of the family members started to wave at me.  BUSTED.  My own family?  Mortified.

Have you ever been caught taking a picture of a stranger?  What happened next?
