I Brake for Photo Ops
Do you ever just want it? A photo? Do you ever turn around the car to go get it? I do. For a long time I've challenged myself to say "snap" out loud or silently inside my head when I pass by a scene I see that would make a great photo IF ONLY I had my camera with me or the time to stop (usually the later).
What is it, that intuition that says "I want that"? I don't know. There are many times when I have to force myself to find something, anything to make a photo. But there are those other beautiful times when "boom" photographic blessings hit. Either while driving or out walking about I try to answer that call.
Here are some.
I am really pleased with this last image. I was driving over the little bridge between Kennebunk and Kennebunkport, saw it and said "that's a photo"....turned around, parked, and sure enough my intuition was spot on.
