Carpe Friday

13

It's Friday, Friday, Friday! Let's bring some good vibes and analogue cheer with everyone's favourite woop woop veteran!

The time has come for us to cheer,
Rejoice my friends; That day is here.
From the hollow shadows of this last weeks hassle
The day is rising, shining ready for battle
You load your E6 or your C41
One last thing, is the lens cap on?

So good people go fourth and capture
Let shutters roar and shout in rapture
Let excited fingers press and wind
Shoot first think last – who knows what we’ll find
Let colours explode from a flashes blast
Showing the future with our analogue past

All through the day let your cameras speak,
May films double expose and let light leak
And lab rats be labby and ratty and brill
Make the most of our cameras; give us a thrill
Maybe today is the day for that shot
That all of us think is really quite hot

We are the brave, the happy, the few
The past, the present and the future to.
Silence the doubtful, the mocking, the sheep.
Rise up, dear friend, let your passion speak
And loudly, proudly stand, sing shout and say
“The moments is here – Carpe Friday!”
