Did you ask for the lady's permission before clicking the snap?

Meera, Doesnt this imply that there is no safety net ;-)

Neel, only a portrait requires her permission. Here it is a snap of the road and she is supposedly "incidental". Lets say she is "collateral damage" in the "shoot out" (photography) ;-)

This quote reminds me of that old Agatha Christie story, 'Appointment with Death'... Not too sure about the title...

And if you need more hands, I'd be only too glad to join in... :)

You might be glad to join in but your manager & HR may not :-)

Yes you are right about the title. I remember the story alright - she is one of my favorite writers of all time. However I dont remember whether there is a similar quote in that.

So true and yet I still find myself wondering what would have been behind door number 2, mostly out of curiosity.

Sonson, I am sorry that I am not in sync with you. "door number 2" - I am not able to get the context. Could you enlighten me a bit?

I guess it comes from old game shows where contestants would win a prize that was hidden behind what was labeled as "Door number 1". They then would be given the choice to keep their prize or give it up for whatever is behind "Door number 2". It would be something either incredibly better than what they had won or much worse.

It basically is an expression that wonders what the other option would have been or what would have happened if you'd made a different choice.

Sonson, thanks for taking the time to let me know. I have come across a modified version of that:

A groom is being asked to select a bride. There are a few conditions:

1. you can see only one bride at a time.
2. you need to decide yes or no immediately
3. if you rejected her then you get the next prospect. However you cant go back and say yes to someone whom you have already rejected.

Its an interesting test/work on psychology.

Anyway atleast I learnt an idiom/expression today. So thanks Sonson.
