Sadly, Shutter Speed

When I was new in photography, I was hoping an adventure; But by the end of the day Just a lecture. Then they picked up camera, Aimed at a deer. It captured even food stuck in its teeth. They smiled and said, “What slowed down the dear, Is shutter speed.” At home, In front of TV, I was just lying. It cried, “Tonight, Meteors will be falling.” At night, It struck, I picked camera And then woke up. Waited whole night And got a line, Captured in camera. Next day, at nine, I presented picture. They looked with no heed, They smiled and said, “All black, sadly, Shutter speed.”
