Default Pic-n-a-post

Ice now builds, upon the trees, a very pretty lot
my camera gone, I use my wifes, to get a decient shot
No DOF, no lens to change, can not adjust the flash
She got this thing some time ago, with just a little cash.
I set it up, all I can do, is push the silver button,
how this turns out, is up to it, which isn't saying nothin
Some day I guess, I'll get mine back, I sent it for repair
but all the wishing for return, has only brought dispair
Next year I hope, if parts come in, and if it's done just
right,
I'll post a pic, next christmas eve, of Santa's famous
flight!


MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!!!

P.S.

I finished writing late, and so, decided with this post,
to leave it here, for those to read, who can sympathise the most.

Ha ha - I greatly sympathise with your plight,
and hope, with all my might,
that next year your prized possession is back in your mitt,
for you to dazzle us with your shots ... and not your wit !

Frank, I've sat and thought it through,
And this is what I think;
Life without my camera would give me cause to drink..
But since my cam'ras healthy, my lens af's just fine,
I think I'll have a set-me-down, and have a glass of wine.

Merry Christmas!

HA HA HA HA HA Robert. Thanks for dropping by with a great addition. I always knew that the depth of field of the mind of a great photographer was as variable as his f/stop. You have proven your metal with your prose! Well done Sir! Frank

Cool poetry and very cool shot! Ice storms make for great photo-opps and you've definitely taken advantage of this one!
