I saw this posting on the Online Photographer Blog and I had to smile. Now I never heard of this phrase before but Lord knows I have laid on the motor drive a time or two.

My camera for work has a 40 image buffer, in other words the camera can take 40 consecutive images before it fills the onboard memory and has to stop and write images to the memory card. I guess when I fire off a series of pictures of a co-worker in the office I am actually “Hosing the Doris”

As it appeared on the Online Photographer Blog:

Hosing the Doris

Part of Speech: v. phr.

In photographers’ parlance it is an activity known as "hosing the Doris"—keeping the button pressed and taking as many frames as possible in the shortest conceivable time of any female celebrity.
