It NEVER fails....I see the most AMAZING things when I don't have my camera on me. Seriously, it is a huge frustration in my life. I'll see an amazing sunset, and wish I had my camera with me, but I rarely do. I will not leave my camera in my vehicle, and I get annoyed by dragging the thing along with me when I'm just going to work, so I leave it at home 95% of the time during the week. I see so many incredible things, and get alittle pissy about not having my camera. I'll quickly decide to bring it the following day, and ALAS...I'll see nothing. What I saw the day before.....we NOT be the same. Drives me insane. I am not kidding....I let it bother me WAY more than I should. I feel all irked inside, and it ruins my mood. I glumly leave my camera at home the following day....and it literally takes me a day or two to get over it. (ummm yeah....I think I have issues...it's okay to think that....I don't mind!)
Well, let's just say that I finally got completely and utterly FED.UP.WITH.IT, so I made a decision to keep my camera with me 24/7. No matter what....I'll have it on me. I figure one of two things will happen:
1. For the rest of my life, I will see absolutly NOTHING amazing again.
2. I will definitely have my camera with me the next time I need it.
Between you and me, I'm hoping for the second result. It has almost been two weeks now. The first week, I spent much of the time annoyed that the weather was yucky, and nothing BEGGED to be photographed. This week, I am much more relaxed, and settling in to just accepting that it is only a matter of time before I'm at the right place, at the right time....WITH my camera. It just has to happen, right?
I took this photo yesterday....and although it isn't what I've been waiting for....I'm pleased that I had the opportunity to capture it. I have seen a sunset from this particular place on my drive home from work MANY times. Having this photo makes me happy, because it reminds me of so many wonderful evenings picking up my Sugar Bear from daycare. It is my favorite time of day.
Have a great weekend!
