Click , Click What Is The Next Picture I Will Take

Updated on September 25, 2012

Just One Quick Second

Smile you look so nice

Can you move a little closer

Come on get in the picture

Is that the best smile you have

If I didn't know it I would say you were waiting to get your teeth pulled at the dentist

That's better

Don't move

Just one more just in case the last one didn't come out good

It is so nice to see everyone

We always say we will get together

Then the years pass and if it wasn't for funerals and wakes

We would never see each other

Thank God for all the good times we spend together

So I walk and click

Then there are those who hate their picture taken

I say one picture


I don't bite

You will never see me again

I then leave if no is no

I come back later and ask nicely

One shot before I go

If you don't like the picture I can take another one

I love the digital age

Where you can take a thousand pictures on one 4g memory card

Later I can hit delete if it was a bad shot

Someone closed their eyes

They yawned or turned around

Waved their hand or bent over

You would be surprised at the worst pictures I have taken

I put them in my private collection

To remind me life doesn't always turn out the way I want

Actually it hardly ever does

I have seventy seven shots to prove it and climbing

Well that is the life of a shutter bug

One who loves other people because they are special

Friends or relatives it doesn't really matter

We all have lives filled with good times and bad

So lets bring out the pictures when the years have passed

Remember when?

Who is that ?

You don't remember your own cousin ?

No that was Uncle Joes friend

Wow I didn't know Richard had a beard

It was long ago when he drove that cherry red 69 Camaro

Look at the styles

Look at the hair or lack of

I never knew uncle Mike was bald

Who's house was that ?

I don't remember that time

I think it was someones wedding

Well you will never hear people say

If it wasn't for the picture taker

We wouldn't have any of these fun times today

Thanks to all you camera buffs out there

Who take the pictures when know one cares

To get all the people we love and know

On a day that we will never forget

unless we have the pictures to prove it

      yes, i love taking pictures ..but, my busy life schedule hardly spares time for my hobby...nevertheless, whenever i found anything worth clicking , my camera or sometimes cell phone camera captures the moment instantly...and since i love nature and children ..most of my photography is based on these two!
