The problem is that when I’ve got non-photographers with me, I am extremely aware of the fact their interest level and mine are not even close to the same. In this case, there were three people sitting in a car while I explored the church.

And, so, even though the light would have been completely different in here in another half hour*, I ended up shooting-and-dashing, in the interest of family dynamics. Please do not mention this to my photography teachers who advocate the “compose and wait” method…

  1. It would have been good to find out, Melinda…Ah, ŵell


  2. The eternal struggle!


  3. My theory is: take a million photos, hope for a good one. Your theory is: “I’m going to go here at precisely 3:42 PM, take exactly one photo, and it will be a perfect work of art.”


    • My theory, based on my decades of second guessing everything, is more like, “I’ll take a bunch of photos now, at 1:57, and hope for the best. And, then, I’ll always wonder if ones made at 3:42 could have been better.”
