TeeKay's Camera: A War Photographers Tale

Recommended Posts

BOLDEdition    20

TeeKay "DeadEye" Gamble is an award winning war photographer and journalist who found himself caught out in South Zagoria after the outbreak.  Rather than attempting to flee the country, he remained in the hopes that when his camera started exposing, the real story would reveal itself.

These brief dispatches are an account of what happened to TeeKay in his first two years, post-outbreak.

 

TWO MONTHS AFTER THE OUTBREAK

Gamble sits down next to the body of an infected who surprised him in the storage area of a corner market. The thing had grabbed at his neck, violently pulling on the camera dangling from it. In the heat of the struggle to break free, the leather straps snapped and Gamble fell backwards hitting the ground hard; the infected landing square on top of him. 

Its breath was hot and rancid as it clawed at his jacket and pulled its face close to his. Gamble pushed his forearm into the things neck in an attempt to force it back. It was strong. Freakishly strong. No matter how hard he pushed, the infected held onto him with an unrelenting grip. Desperate to be from underneath the screaming, writhing nightmare, Gamble reached out. His hand swept against the dirty floor, feeling for anything that could be used as a weapon. 

And that is when he felt it. 

The lens of his camera was unmistakable. With the tips of his fingers Gamble touched the glass and the ridged rings that formed around it. He struggled and grabbed at the lens gripping the entire camera, then swung upwards; the full weight of the camera crashed against its head. The zombie rolled off Gamble as he scrambled from underneath. 

He looked at his camera. His trusty M7 rangefinder had been a gift from his mentor when he received his first assignment. It has been with him ever since and has provided him a unique and exclusive perspective of the world. Now, bearing the brunt of being smashed against a skull, with its body dented and the glass of the lens cracked, Gamble’s Leica M7 had once again done something extraordinary—it had saved his life
