A normal person sees a storm, thinks help and runs away
A photographer sees that storm, and runs the other way
Off into the cold they go, the wind, the rain and more
To capture pics no matter what, of all the things they saw
Watching all the huge waves crashing, defiantly they stand
Looking out from beneath the pier, with camera in hand
Why do we do such stupid things, like photograph the snow
We can’t resist to get that pic, so off we always go
We see the world through rule of thirds, and many shades of grey
The search to get the perfect shot, continues every day

“The photographer” by Dean Thorpe.

Inside me lies a huge photo enthusiast and I love clicking. Like mentioned in the poem, I keep looking for shots at every place. Carrying my Sony DSC H50, I love backpacking and travelling in search of pictures, trying to understand more, talk to people and understand cultures. Just because today is the world photography day, I am sharing a few of my pictures which I clicked when I was just bitten by the photography bug…:)
