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

camera_duels #cameraduels #goodform #justkiddingfuckyou Outside, drinking coffee, look up, dischick. Her and her mother posed perfectly with me conveniently in the middle their two heads. 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 1y

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. 1y

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. 1y

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. 1y

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

In the game of camera dueling, the heavier and more expensive the weapon, the slower and more obvious the draw. I heard and saw this woman ages before she was ready to take the shot, not to mention, she forgot to turn the flash off (I have another photo in which I caught the flash). Forgetting to remove the flash is baby's first mistake, comparable only to an extremely loud shutter. Always the signs of a novice, a large camera has all these aforementioned problems +, and is never the good way to go. Can't I eat my pad Thai in peace? :)

If you had any previous doubt whether or not people were ACTUALLY taking my photo, this should solve it. The girl, probably around 9, got out her camera phone and then, encouraged by her entire table, proceeded to fire off shot after shot in my direction. I'll let you guys pull at all the atrocities in the previous sentence. After she had finished, she looked at me vacantly, turned her nose upward so I could see her mucus, and grunted in a phacochoerus fashion. Goog that word if you don't know it.

One of my favorites. A father and daughter partook of the opportunity to bond with one another at my expense. Judging by the fathers hat (an Ed-hardy bedazzled trucker cap that said DGAF), this family really takes what they get offered. Not a bad way to live if you ask me.
Many of you have been engaging in camera duels without my awareness to it. While I would normally applaud your success, I feel the need to reiterate how a duel works. Shooting someone IN THE BACK is not a duel, that's a cowards game. If it weren't for my luscious mane and primate physique, how would you even tell it was me in the photo!? Just a thought, if you want to win the duel, you should get my face in the shot. That way you can see my crippling despair.

Hiding you face can't hide you shame! Get used to lookin behind those bars because I'm takin you in. Sheriffs back in town pinky, and your poisoning the watering hole. She giggled the whole time I was taking her photo, almost as if she enjoyed it.......why.....my god why? It seems people have started seeking me out in order to duel. YOU'RE MISSING THE POINT! I should've seen this coming I guess, people always want vengeance for the ones I have slain. So be it, have at you!

camera_duels #cameraduels #peanutgallery #bleachers #gigglefits #giggleshits In Argo tea, before I descended the staircase towards my classroom, I heard the loud squawks of what I believed to be a flock of buzzards. Lo and behold, to my antisurprise, it was three. grown. women. These adult-infants had apparently recognized me and caused such a fuss, I was able to spot them on the overhang. Quick was my gun, and soon those buzzards had been shot and de-feathered. One of the birds came up to apologize after the deed was done, in triumphant remorse she introduced herself to me and then was off. Nice girl, bad stealth. 2y
