Confessions of a Compulsive Paparazzo

Posted

by Wayne Richard Pope

  

Last night while you were sleeping, 

Warm and safe in bed, 

Nikon man photographed your holiday lights, 

Of orange and blue and red. 

Snowflakes pummeled him like Muhammad Ali, 

Without pity or remorse, 

Some big enough to deck King Kong, 

Or at least a Clydesdale horse! 

 

Wayne Richard Pope is a fervent Lansing booster and a photojournalist and a snap-happy documentarian always on the lookout for a photo opportunity. He studied photography at Lansing Community College. Putting pictures and words together is his lifelong joy.
