So how do Strangers react when you take a photograph?'.
Do they frown or sneer or turn their backs on you and laugh?
Well, my problem isn't strangers; they're usually quite O.K.
In fact, the very worst they do is quickly turn away.
But family! That's another thing. My camera is taboo!
'Not again!' they gasp and mutter when I look for something new.
This was supposed to be my son, Greg, with his Harry on his knee,
I pictured a family portrait saved for eternity.
I imagined seraphic expressions, or a warm and friendly smile,
But I soon learned co-operation isn't the family style.
Harry made a sort of attempt at a really cherubic face,
But Greg was past pretending; he really fell from grace.
So, is blood thicker than water! It seems to me it's not!
Oh well, there's always tomorrow to try for the perfect shot!
