The man had a fear to discuss with a friend
While taking his old camera in…
Replacing batteries and buying more film,
The occasional tempting of sin.

He didn’t want a new camera phone,
The process was too easy then…
He wanted his subjects opportunity to run (!)
Before he succombed to his ken.

A manual Single-Lens-Reflex camera
He’d gotten and used in his youth…
His wife thought it time he used it again,
She trusted he’d take nothing uncouth.
