I Should Have Had My Camera
I bet you've said that before, too -- "I should have had my camera." Folks who know me are aware that I usually _do_ have my camera along with me when I leave the house. But not today. A long trip to the dump and then shopping made it twilight when I finally came up the steep gravel road to the house -- and I caught my breath as not one, not two....four!!! deer stepped out in front of me as I rounded the curve to my sister's house. What a gorgeous sight in the day's fading light. I should have had my camera.
But sometimes it's nice _not_ to have a camera along. You experience things first-hand instead of flying into work mode, thinking about light and shadow, angles and composition.
So I had no choice but to experience that fleeting moment of a narrow road filled with deer naked so to speak. Some things are meant to be enjoyed without the intrusion of a camera - or of other folks even.
