Humor and photography

Found on the Web

When I took up photography, I bought the best camera I could find. The first time I used it in a mountain park, I accidentally snapped a couple of pictures while fumbling with the pamphlets, the buttons, and all the adjustments. Irritated by this, I conscientiously read through all the instructions and finished the roll with great confidence. When I took it in to be developed I also asked the clerk to comment on the pictures. Several days later I picked up the film and found a note attached to the package: “Keep doing whatever you did for the first couple of pictures. They were great.”
