I Wouldn't Spend My Life Just Wishing

Welcome to Choose and Defend Wednesday here at Fresh Hell.  Today's Choose and Defend was inspired by some recent photo-worthy gatherings that I've attended...from the holidays, to the zoo, to Cougar Town.  I've noticed the different nature of those who photograph and those who are photographed.  So I thought I'd throw it out to you, my favorite people to throw things out to! 

Who are you?

The Photographer
OR

The Subject


We've probably all been both.  Even the smallest child can take a decent photograph in this age of digital magic :)  But at heart, you are one or the other...so which is it? Choose. Why is it? Defend.  I await your comments with bated breath! Choose and Defend!

Definitely the photographer. If you take the pictures there is a lesser chance that you have to be in them, after all.

I'm the photographer, no doubt. My dad was the photographer in the family, too, as evident by the oodles of photos he used to take and the ones I'm trying to sort out and reorganize. :)

I have a pathological fear of photographs, so...nuff said.

Churlita: That is a sound argument right there :) One for Photographer.

Tara: Families need to have that person who takes charge of chronicling things! Good for you. Two for Photographer.

James: Wait, wait, wait...not 'nuff said! Afraid of photos as in phobia? Or as in not caring to appear in photos? I need more here...

NoRegrets: Isn't that a silly little face? I like that the popcorn is as big as he is :) Three for Photographer.

Mrs: Argh! How can you do this to me! Fence straddler!!! One for Both. Hmph! :)

Everyone: This is an odd one, I'll say :) We have 3 Photographers, 1 who's both, and someone who fears photographs! I am so intrigued.
Please join us in this intriguing discussion.

I'll vote for photographer, but only because who the heck would want to see a picture of me!?

3GK: Hey! Only everyone :) But I do sense a lack of love for being photographed in this group...
Four for Photographer.
