Murphy must have been a photographer!

Some of Murphy’s laws pertaining to photography. I’ve experienced many of these myself!

Automatic cameras aren't

Auto focus won't

If it's stupid but it works, it isn't stupid

Success occurs when no one is looking, failure occurs when everyone is watching

The one item (batteries, film, etc.) you need is always in short supply

Interchangeable parts aren't

Long life batteries only last for a couple of rolls

Weather never cooperates

Everything always works in your home, everything always fails on location

For every action, there is an equal and opposite criticism

There is always a way, and it usually doesn't work

Stunning nature shots invariably happen on two occasions: 1)When animals or the weather are ready. 2) When you're not.

Same rule just substitute children

The important things are always simple

The simple things are always hard

A clean (and dry) camera is a magnet for dust, mud and moisture

Photo experience is something you never get until just after you need it

Lenses are attracted back to their source - hard rocks. Corollary: The more expensive the lens, the greater the attraction.

The greater a photographer's excitement, the greater the chance of fogging film, scratching prints, and deleting files.
