May I take a picture of you ? #1 (permalink) Fri Apr 08, 2011 15:36 pm   May I take a picture of you ?
 

"May I take a picture of you?"

Could you please tell me how to say yes and how to say no to this request? The more , the better.

Thanks.

If you like.
Yes, of course.
Where would you like me to stand?
If you want to.

I'd rather you didn't.
Not right now.
No, thanks.
I wouldn't like that.

Here are a couple more YES responses:

"Sure, snap away."
"Cheeeeeeeeese." (whimsical -- this person doesn't even bother saying yes, but instead simply strikes a pose with a grin)

And here is an example of an indirect way of saying NO:

"I'm not at all photogenic, so I don't like having my picture taken."
