A photographer’s 12 Days of Christmas

They had a good time posting what their true love should send; and some suggestions were far too creative to fit. But after editing and smoothing the edges I came up with the following.

For fun this year I asked members of my favorite online forum www.Canadian-Photographers.ca to give me ideas for a photographer’s version of the Twelve Days of Christmas. They had a good time posting what their true love should send; and some suggestions were far too creative to fit. But after editing and smoothing the edges I came up with the following.

The Twelve Photographer’s Days of Christmas

On the first day of Christmas my true love sent to me a brand new DSLR.

One can, with lots of poetic license and creative rhythm, sing the lyrics. And for those photographers that think this might help their spouse, children, friends, and relatives with gift ideas for this Christmas, just tear the newspaper page out for them.

And if you have any additions, go to www.Canadian-Photographers.ca and join in the fun.
