Slow Down and Think

September 12, 2015

I made a mistake today.

I went to a classic car show in my local town centre specifically to take photos.

I had a look around and was largely uninspired. Many of the cars were from the vinyl bumper era. There wasn’t much chrome and chrome is what I went for. However, there were a couple of cars that were worthy of photos, yet the camera stayed in the bag.

The sun had disappeared behind a cloud and the cars lost their shiny appeal. So, I gave up and went home.

What a waste of time!

And a waste of an opportunity.

If only I’d sat down for just a couple of minutes and thought about it. Black and white photos are often the solution to overcast conditions, but instead I rushed around, gave up and went home without thinking about it.

Lesson learned.
