camera_duels I shot first. She looked at me and whimpered, "a-am I gunna end up on your instagram?" I let out a reassuring smile, "not anymore" I said calmingly as I looked the poor girl in the eyes and lied to her soul. Her friends joined me in Recognizing her guilt, they laughed, I laughed, WE laughed. It was a good time, you had to be there. Apparently graduation is not even enough to warrant acting like an adult, but who am I to talk?, I wore depends under my gown. Now that I've graduated people have been asking me "Cole, will you post more now?" To which I always say, "how did you get in my house?" #NYU #Graduation #cameraduels #pleasego 1w

camera_duels A nice afternoon as the only people sledding over 10yo, when, like an unholy din, a red menace washed over the pale white snow, camera in hand. I was a bull driven mad by rouge, and I knew...duel was on. Poor humble Douglas was caught in the crossfire, but friends die all the time in the game of war. It was only after the duel had ended, and the bodies of hundreds of Central Park children lay all around us that I noticed the man wore a #NationalGeographic emblem on his coat. He was a professional.
Used to shooting #wildbeasts, my mannerisms must have been familiar to him. And the look of determination in his eye was characteristic of a man who had seen both fear and wonder. We talked after the fight, as duelist's often do, and both held a mutual respect. He was @kikeo, check out his side of the story. #PoorDouglas #PhotoShootoff #Protographer #DuelingInTheBigLeagues #DaddyNeedsANewPairOfShoes

camera_duels Wow, look at the face she's making. The human mouth should only open that wide for two reasons: (1) screaming 'fire,' and (2) wailing during moments of overwhelming humanity. Apparently I warranted that primal facial contortion.
YES I, it is I in that photo. I like to give opposing perspective to the #cameraduels, mainly because it's fun to see myself shoot victorious, but also because some of you...incurable skeptics...don't believe the duels actually happen. They say "Cole youre paranoid!" And they're right, I am, but clearly for a reason. This shot actually shows the victims POV from the last duel I posted. If you zoom in close to my face, you can actually see the twisted grin. Zoom even closer and I'm sure you could see Satan in the reflection of my goggles. Oh wait, nevermind... that's not Lucifer, that's just the girl screaming. #MortalQuestions #ScreamingSelfie #Opposhot

camera_duels When you get sneaky photos taken of you, you pick up a profound sense of paranoia. All of your senses are heightened to the duelist's presence. You can smell em, you can taste em in the air, you can see the red aura that they burn off their boney frames. Most of all, you can hear your name whispered like voldemort. I've become adept at knowing when someone says my name, even in a crowded noisy lodge. (Kahhhlllll•ssssppprrooowwwss) is all I heard from the two girls staring at me out of the corner of my eye. Their pupils were pitch black, and they were smilin with teeth like sharp stones.if it weren't for the photo proof, I would swear the whole event took place in grainy black and white. Here are the two pullin the ole overtheshoulder slickpic. Looks at that venomous grin, like a guilty dog. #Coldemort #cameraduels #camera_duels #MammothMountain 5mon

camera_duels Not but 30 seconds after arriving on the plane, a quick glance to my right revealed this seafoam sapiens breathing heavily and scrambling for her phone. Little lady must've thought, just because her phone matched her shirt, that I wouldn't detect her desperate photos. Firstly, my vision is based on fear, and I saw you right away. Second, nay.
The victim: @tater_tots15 claimed it was a "tie." Her innocent account name perfectly reflects how violently she lost. She posted a picture of our duel, in which my debonair gait and relaxed posture so too reflects how prepared I was for her ludicrous display of #AeronauticArseholery. My Cheshire grin must have scared the other passengers, and I was quickly escorted off the plane for being #TooDamnBomb #cameraduels

camera_duels Who would have thought, the mother with child, would have prioritized taking our picture over steadying her baby's carriage on a moving train? I did. I would have thought.
Firstly, her child is too young for The Street Life of Shaq and Kobe, so we all know she was taking that picture for herself. Unless of course she was making a long term investment, banking on the baby enjoying the show when #it grows up. #ItsCalledInvesting. Trying to be sneaky, she made the number 1 rookie mistake, #Flash. My poor, helpless, innocent, virgin brother was caught in the middle of our duel. You can see the fear in his eyes and the determination in mine, both being trumped by the look of shame in hers. #cameraduels #BabyOnBoard #FamilyDrama #TheStreetLifeOfShaqAndKobe

camera_duels "I just don't wanna be in the picture" she said, saddened by the fact that she was now collateral damage. Vengeance was the only thing on my mind, the lady's honor depended on it. I was in no mood for photos...I had a different kind of ammo for this. Sometimes a duel asks for a new kind of approach, and so a video was appropriate.
The poor duelist signaled game on by screaming a whisper into her companion's face. This was shortly followed by a giggle, one that was enough to make a hyena jealous. The male companion grabbed his floppy hat and smiled nervously. This is when she fired the first couple shots. Thankfully (and "unfortunately" if we're being politically correct) the crowded subway goers took the shots for me. Necessary casualties. Now is when the video began, panic already sewn through the entire car with multiple people's photos already taken. Let the duelists' final expressions tell you who won. #cameraduels #SubwayShowdown #streetfighter #video #ManyFramesOfShame

Look upon it, do you see? This is the venomous face of mischief incarnate. I've decided to zoom this picture into, what may be, an uncomfortable proximity of this boy's head. It does serve a purpose though, and I wanted you all to plainly see what a duel looks like from a contestant around 16yo. They all do this exact face, and I don't often paint with such a large brush, but Instagram is a place for generalizations.
Lets break it down mechanically. Chin down, eradicated by the skin of the neck. Nostrils flared in an ape-like message of passion. Cheeks bulging with rotten words. Eyes half closed after a session of frantic blinking. And, of course, the smile, that damned thing, illuminating an upper jaw triumphing over its defeat of the lower.
Mania, pure insanity. What scared me the most, however, was how this kid looked like he could've been a younger sibling. How often have I made this face?

camera_duels #cameraduels #camera_duels #ATrick #AngerCafe #Caf'anger "Don't worry, I won't post this photo" I told him lokinously. Yet even with glasses he didn't see through my illusion.
Behold his defeat!
His friend, the girl honking her vocals on the right, knew he was bested, and tickled by the event I quivered with a publicly pleasant rage. Winners write the events in history, and this duel has forever been etched on virtual stone.

So you babblers keep asking for "MOAR PICS OF YOUR FAISE!" My consistent brushing off of these remarks hasn't worked, so I'll answer your desperate requests in a rarified but relevant way.
I don't take photos of my face because that goes directly against the point, artistic and functional, of this account -plus EVERYONE else on instagram, aside from the frenchbulldog owners, gives you the same exact thing...hoards of selfies, so why should I?-. This photo, however, fits both the needs of my cooing populace and the requirements of my account.
This is a photo of me winning a duel. You can tell I'm winning because I'm smiling maliciously, a response of second nature to me now. I remember who took this photo actually, a young girl sitting next to her young, skateboarding boyfriend. Both of them #ReekedOfPatchouli. They must have thought themselves quick, not evidently quick enough. At least she didn't try to shoot me in the back like most of the other NYU arrivals. #ShootingTheBackIsNotADuel #eatyourveggies #brushyourteeth #gotobedataresponsiblehour

New semester has started up at NYU and that means the arriving class is getting younger and younger. For people of a more social inclination this would be a good thing, as a new crowd means new friends!... Yet, for people like me, palid and tempered by the hammer of a desktop computer and eyes blackened by late nights in Skyrim, younger crowds mean more duels.
Upon review of my past battles, it seems the majority of my duelists are Asian. I don't know if this is because of the large population of the Asian community at NYU (or any university for that matter), or that my giggles are so kawaii that easterners gravitate towards my camera like satellites. Either way, the fear is real.
This young asian woman, the one with water spouting from her skull like the drool from Dylan's mouth, tried to catch my entire party off guard. If it weren't for the quickness of my draw, she might have caught me mid bite. She failed, and to make her defeat worse, I was drinking Japanese green tea. #FueledByHerAncestorsDrinkOfChoice

Oh look, what a standard technique they employed to try and catch me off guard. I'll just casually swing my phone in my hand while walking...but wait, I wasn't just swinging my phone, I was actually taking your picture, single handed.
My mamba-like agility is what keeps me ahead of your photo shenanigans.
They tried, they lost. Look at their sad German expressions. One might say I found shadenfreude. #BabiesOnTrial #GitErDone
You guys may wonder "Cole, why don't you post more often?" It's simple guys. I don't waste all my time on this website filled with people so vain, that they serve as a highway for my bad blood.

Look at this shit.
See these kids? I did too. Apparently someone caught me dueling a two children...what have I become? That may look like a smile on my face but don't be fooled, thats pure anger of a 24karat composition. My trip to Bulgaria taught me that Bulgarians really don't give a damn. The men: built like boulders on Popsicle sticks (always skipping leg day). The women: all babushkas in training. Thankfully the archaeological site was fun... if you like working outside and filter feeding manure through a sheet of dust...archaeological Darwinism, the strong survive.

But seriously, Bulgaria, say hello to Asiz, I'll be back soon

camera_duels #cameraduels #camera_duels #TheElusivePink #SuccubineGiggling . Usually the first signs of a duel, there are tell-tale environmental cues to alert one that a battle has started. First comes the wheezing, followed by a toyota giggle that would make the most stubborn of drivers switch lanes. Next comes the religious whispers -the plotting to go through with the sin. Then, the hiding of one's self, and finally the snap of the picture.
LET ME TELL YOU HOW WELL I KNOW THIS PROCESS. I know it so well, i go through the all the steps before i go to bed at night.
This girl might have succeeded if it weren't for her loudly colored, pink iphone case. The slow, awkward lean behind your mother didn't hide your defeat. #IFeedOnLoss

While my first instinct was to drop trow and show them the ole gibbous, I figured you guys would enjoy a photo more. Good try ladies 2y

camera_duels 80k followers! Wow 80k more people who now try to take secret photos of me on the street! Yay? Did my Instagram backfire? Have I actually stoked the flame rather than douse it? No matte, I'll duel all of you if need be. This kid thought he was reaaaaal slick from 2 feet away. Tip- if you wanna avoid attention, don't lock with my eyes and drop your mouth.- When he took the photo, he let out a call that sounded a lot like a gibbon's mating ritual. Secrecy is what will lead you to victory in a duel, not impassioned primate squealing. 2y

camera_duels #cameraduels #scope #animatedcats #thecamerasutra Judging by the hello kitty briefcase I'm going to guess and say that (a) this man has a daughter or (b) he has an unhealthy infatuation with cartoon cats and Disney channel (a fetish in its own right). I was asked how I knew this man was taking a photo of me. No one, not a single person, casually looks at their phone at that angle. Directly in front of the face, looking right into the screen, but 2 inches from the nose, this is a clear photo taking position. If you're holding your phone like this and aren't taking a picture you're going blind, hate to break it to you, you don't even need to see a doctor, I can diagnose you. 2y

camera_duels #cameraduels #playingaDS #persuAsians #pastapocalypse #mommyshome last night I had a dream I lost a camera duel, that's how I knew it was a dream. I'm back from my hiatus away from dueling. I was waterfall training up in the Sierra mountains, perfecting my camera techniques and growing an even more beautiful head of hair. THIS CHICK RIGHT HERE THO, tried to snap one of me eating some noodles. I flipped the table and threw noodles everywhere. Pastapocalypse was brought down upon her. She didn't know that ramen, to me, is like spinach to popeye. No but seriously she looked genuinely upset that she couldn't prepare for her big debut on my Instagram. That's whatcha get. 2y

camera_duels #cameraduels #camouflage #notblendingin With almost no time to react, just as I take a seat on the subway I'm stirred by the sounds of elderly bickering. I look up to see, not two older folk, but two young people wrestling over a phone. Turns out they were fighting over who got to take a 'sneaky' shot. His camouflage didn't help him in the slightest. Perhaps it was the woman sitting next to him who, after the tussle, had thrown her legs on him in lusty defeat, but the the man seemed greatly bothered by something. Likely my victorious shit-eating grin. 2y

While eating with my family, and to my surprise, a waiter (our trusted waiter) had descended upon us weapon in hand. He took out my brother, necessary casualty, and proceeded to try and capture my soul along with him. "Not on this day!" I howled, snapping a photo quicker than lightning. Afterwards, he tried to engage in conversation using some dialogue that certainly wasn't human. I'm keeping my lens cap off whenever I enter that place from now on.
Some of you may be wondering, "what did you do to piss off tumblr Cole?" I met them all in person and insulted their respective family lineages, betraying the trust I gained by meeting them all face to face. Don't worry, they are the people I take photos of in this Instagram...well maybe not the older Chinese waiters but you get the implication
