Neville

Because it Got in the Way

Because it Got in the Way

 

If it moved he would shoot it

If it did not move

He would often shoot it twice

      Yes, some people are indeed .. and some people are serial killers while others keep bees .. fortunately, not too many though .. I did mean the former by the way ... thank you yellowrose .. it never ceases to amaze how folk interpret this or that .. well everything really ..

        What do you mean it won't move, then take two! Ha ha, if everything is nothing then play on. It takes time to know it comes around.

            Yikes... I once spoke to a sniper who said they were sort of taught to do that, assuming they spotted a "legitimate" target. If you miss with one shot, the target may hope you stop trying!

              I like to think I might be that brave, or stupid ............ 🙂

              The riddle being one of the oldest genres of literature (poetry?), gratitude for continuing the spirit of that tradition.

                cheers my friend ................ my inspiration for this little scribble came from watching a photographer at work ......................................................................................................... 🙂

                  I looked straight at my nemesis and wondered - why!
                  Your words, exceptional

                  • Neville



                    how brave .. how kinda kind .. bless you SureshG .. many thanks indeed 🙂

                  • myself and me

                    A funny reason for a silly shoot. If it move too fast, he will miss it.

                    • Neville



                      you can get some incredibly fast shutter speeds these days .. faster than a bullet even .. Cheers 🙂

                      Those who shoot life for pleasure are totally despicable Neville.

                        I totally agree but ... the inspiration for this little scribble came from my watching a nature photographer at work 🙂

                        Interesting play with words N. When I shoot, I shoot with a Canon. ; )
