I was unlocking my baby the other day, when I was approached by a man named "Les." "Les" properly identified the make of my bike. He intimated that his son was also an avid biker.
He asked about my profession. I told him that I take pictures and write about people for a living.
He then intimated that he also was a photographer. "Les" spent several years as the staff photographer for a local news station. "Les" engaged me in a discussion about our photographic philosophies. Surprisingly, they meshed rather well.
This, friends, is what we in the industry (I am a registered ninja) call an "affinity con." That's when a clandestine inquisitor feigns common interests. Their goal is to siphon as much information out of you as they can.
No need for your polar spy tactics, "Les." I think we both know what you really wanted to ask:
I've been naughty.
But then, you already knew that, didn't you?
Happy Holidays to you and yours, dear reader. Hope to see you again in the new year.
