Hugo, I hope this won't press your knowledge too far,
but I'd like your advice on buying a digital camera.

We'll start with budget, £200 no more
Coz I'm rubbish at pictures
I'll photo the floor!

I don't need a lot of features and gadgets
But a simple interface to my PC
would be just magic

It must be simple and easy to use,
So dear Hugo,
Could you please help me choose?

:)

I can't remember the last (if ever) someone wrote something to me on verse. :eek:

In that price range a compact Canon Digital Ixus 50 will work fine for you. Or the cheaper Powershot 520. :)

G asks a question in rhyming verse
hugo just blanked it
He must rehearse

For want of a camera
I'm your man
If anyone can do it
Canon can

So ty out the Ixus
that's my advice
just make sure
it's OK on price.

G - I have a feeling a trick has been missed
Why did you not add this to your Chistmas List?
If you've been good, I'm sure Santa would be leaving
A parcel from Canon with features a'heaving
You'd have a flash camera with all the right bits
And I'm sure some lovely lady would be happy to flash her ......teeth

......at you








damn! I'm crap at poetry :rolleyes:



coat on, out the door....... :eek:

Dear Hugo,
I thank you for your advice.
I've seen pictures of the camera,
And it seems rather nice.

This weekend
I shall view one at Currys,
A purchase may be immediate,
But I'm in real hurry.

When the camera is bought
I take some snaps
I'll value your thoughts,
Even if my pics are crap ;) :D

Hello there G,
what's the big hurry?
You're running faster
than last night's curry!

There's an old saying
I'll repeat for good measure
Buy in haste,
and repent at your leisure

Is the reason it's so urgent
To get the camera in your mitts,
That the young lady in question
Is already bearing her..... smile

.....for you?



Nope, still doesn't work :rolleyes:

One of these days, I'll get the hang of this poetry malarkey....... :eek:

Green Clover you jest! :D
but this request
has nowt to do
with the promise of breast

My folks, how they pleaded!
A camera is needed
While my niece is still young
let's capture how
she pokes out her tongue

Plus I can post pictures
of my immaculate 172
For you to admire and say
"that looks brand new!"

Did I mention breast? :eek:
I wouldn't be so crude! :tut:
My thoughts are always pure
And never that lewd. :p

So, in my posting
I was half-way there,
You will be taking photos
Of a lady (& puppy! :p ) young and fair.

In your quest for a camera
May Lady Luck show you favour.
And please share with us here
The fruits of your labour. :cool:



:D

Poems on AO will never be famous
In fact their content can be quite heinous
So off to the store with your wad clutched in hand
And try all the cameras that are in your price band

The features you need can be checked from a list
This way ensuring that nothing gets missed
Whatever you choose will afford you great pleasure
And give you fine photos you always will treasure


:cool: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :)

So BeeGee thinks that AO can't cut the mustard
In the poetry stakes, but we refuse to be flustered.
Our rhyming verse may need some more polishing
But our efforts aren't helped by your constant admonishing! :tut:

Encourage AO'ers to let their creative juices flow
We should all join in this thread and give it a go.
Don't matter if it flows, don't matter if it don't rhyme,
You might find once you've started, you'll have a real good time!


:rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :p

Scanning the posts on AO to past the time,
I chanced across a tread that caught my eye,
It seem that G, decided prose was sadly lacking,
So in verse chose to write when attacking
The problem of asking for advice photographic,
‘bout good digital cameras with prices economic.

T’is normal when posting not to rhyme,
It surely takes much more time,
To find the words then carefully think,
(Perhaps finding inspiration from a drink),
How best to express your thoughts with clarity,
Whilst using words that have some parity.

I’m constantly amazed at AO’s content.
Why should Alfa owners be so different?
Here’s a forum where posting tongue in cheek,
Day after day, or continuing for weeks,
To topics varied, weird and mostly fun
Now is added rhyme to prove they’re not dumb.





This is just like a Christmas panto....to be continued? :) :) :)

Come to AO and ask for camera advice,
And poems come back
With words so nice.
It's amusing to read what you have written,
This rhyming malarkey
has got me so smitten.
I'm not sure how long this can go on,
It'll probably stop
when a poem goes wrong

:)
