“The photographer is too well trained to capture the front of his subjects. (He needs some Tock-Training I guess.)”

EXCUSE Me?

The calendar says ‘Tocktober 26. It’s getting pretty late in the month, and you’ve been trying to get that Perfect ‘Tock Shot. You quietly creep into position in your bare feet, silently cursing #$#%!& when your camera beeps at you to let you know the battery is low. Too late.

Your camera has betrayed you. You’re busted with The Look.
