There are supposed to be so many cameras around today that we are all being photographed on a daily basis. This wonderful VisDare photo prompt from Angela got me thinking about surveillance.
Here is my 150 word story.
I joined the Agency a week ago. They told me I had particular qualities they’d been looking for. The first five days I was office bound being taught how to take discreet photos, how to blend into a crowd or lose a tail. On day 6 the boss told me I would be joining him on a very important surveillance job and I was to bring the camera.
We’ve been round this park five times so far. I can’t see a bloody thing. I hold the camera in front of me and every now and then the boss whispers ‘Now’ and I click. I’ve no idea what I’m photographing.
Suddenly the boss stops and kicks the back of my leg, whispering,
“I think we may have a problem Smithers. The chap by the gate keeps looking this way. I think he may have rumbled us. My fault, should’ve worn a bloody hat, would’ve made me less conspicuous.”
