I left my camera at home the other night on my way to my bowling league, then wondered if I should have put it in the car. Being in a hurry I decided to go into town, which is a short drive of one and a half miles. As I parked the car and locked the doors I looked at the nearby mountains and the late afternoon lighting in the sky. The sunlight and clouds were putting on a show and it was a good one. The mountain had the right amount of sunlight and shadow, which doesn't happen unless the clouds and sun are at the right angle in the sky. I debated about getting back in the car and drving back to the house for my camera. I then looked at my watch and the sky. I knew the way the light and clouds were moving there would be no way of returning and getting the photo I had just seen slip into the past. I shook my head and continued to bowl that evening. It never fails, sometimes the best images are those not taken. Ever see something that would have been a great photo and not had your camera with you? How do you feel when it happens? Do you then pack the camera every time you get in your car?
