Photographers are a funny old lot

I suspect they may have long lost the plot.

Their snapping away with one squinted eye

Recording the events, the camera don’t lie!



Obsessed with the detail, concerned with each dot,

Seeking and searching for the ultimate shot.

Posing and preening, with lights high and low,

The hours they’ve put in no-one will know.


At the end of the shooting when all’s said and done

To make people like it, it needs to be fun.

So forget all the techniques for a short while

And get out and capture the world with a smile.
