The Photographer   1 comment

See the light
Is it just right
Capture it how
Capture it now
10 seconds
Damn – too long
The moment gone

Waiting
Waiting
Arms aching
Shot is coming
Camera ready
I can’t put it down
Keep the camera steady

To capture
On a tripod
By a bi-pod
Don’t rush
Don’t jerk
Gently press
An art on earth

By the rules
Portraits on stools
Into the light
Gather my sight
Filter away
Macro
Zoom or stay

Do I crop
Do I straighten
Keep it natural
Retouch
Red-eye
Too much grass
Not enough sky

There it was
Felt it coming
Shot in the air
Momentum showing
Gentle the light
Kept it tight
At last – the image right
