Photographer Vs Programmer

When I was a fresher myself at the Indian Instt of Information technology, I used to hope that I could become a photographer. It was so much better than being a programmer. Instead of watching football on TV, the news company would pay me to go there and take photos!

What will you do when you go on a vacation to a beautiful place? Take pictures, right? A photographer does exactly that – but he gets paid instead of having to pay!

And all he needs to carry a light  250gm camera – not with a 2000gm Laptop hanging on one side that makes you feel dis balanced. And no, he doesnt have to stare at a 2 dimensional array of sick pixels all day long that make him shortsighted, with a crooked neck and paining back!

With thoughts of becoming a photographer, I purchased a camera and started shooting!

My stint as a sports photographer:

didn’t  last long.  I took this photgraph, but they rejected it. So I switched to the turf and shot this:

but they said my angles were all wrong! What idiots.  I realized that the sportsmen were too ignorant to see the intellect in my photography. So I switched to Politics.

But Mr Chowng Wong sued me for this picture. Now you tell me, did I take this picture from a wrong angle? All politicians are blind to see my work’s beauty, so I thought I’d shoot architectural wonders 3353735956_67f298d765_o

but it seemed those places were too alive and kicking and filled with disturbing people who came in my way just as I clicked.

Let’s go to a beach and shoot some serene backgrounds, I thought. But strange Yoga addicts sabotaged my pics!

And then I went crazy and started shooting  just  about anything I could focus my lens on.

But everybody said my pictures were taken from the wrong angles! Morons.  I quit photography! So now, I’m a programmer.

Well, I did copy paste all these photos, they are not my own. See – I have everything to be a good programmer!
