Jaded journalist Mandy J Watson paused midway through crossing Long Street, so named because of its length, and grabbed her camera from her bag to take this photograph at this most opportune moment, for the road had been closed due to a function* or a filming project - she wasn't sure which as a giant tent blocked her view, outside Long Street Cafe, but at least it was also blocking traffic from getting in the way of her taking this photograph. She lifted the camera, in doing so dismissing a momentary fleeting thought of regret that this was the only camera that she had with her, as it had by this point already been in for repair twice and had proven to be a most unsatisfactory purchase as the second time it had returned from being repaired it returned without its former glory and an inability to take perfectly focussed photographs, which meant that this photo she was now taking would never look as good as it may have if she had used another camera.
Also, the weather was kak.
*Turns out it was The Loerie Awards
- but never let facts get in the way of a good story.
