"Snapshot" Quotes from Famous Books

... spirited article with illustrations of some well-known lady hockey players—proof positive of the fallacy that hockey damaged their appearance. I am afraid most of these contortions are the product of the snapshot camera. It must be remembered that instantaneous photographs show players of games as they are really never seen.

... what say you? I will show you the exact spot some day, and your son's grave near by. I'd have his picture in the gallery if I were you. . . .

... sought the bar. It should be there, if anywhere, the poster with the announcement of Andrew Lanning's outlawry and the picture of him. What picture would they take? The old snapshot of the year before, which Jasper had taken? No doubt that would be the one. But much as he yearned to do so, he dared not search the wall. He stood up to the bar and faced the bartender. The latter favored him with one searching glance, and then pushed ...

... now, instead of eventually. Even if thirty dollars takes your last nickel, don't hesitate.
