Some facts, BW shooter, mostly. Been doing pics for eons.

Dreamt of two missed photo grabs and it woke me.

1.) Imagine, in color, 8 Amish 10-13 year old girls on dirt county road, all riding fat-wheeled bicycles, in line even and abreast, while wearing pastel Sunday best dresses, on a Sunday morning going to church. Was near Abbotsford, WI, off 21.

Plain gave it up, as a "color" shot...back in my film days.

2. Dead Meadowlark still clinging to high wire, swinging, upside-down, feet still curled around wire, hung for couple years while foolish me hunted pheasants, and never gave a thought for picture. Duh!

Both still haunt, knowing "good photo grabs" like these are generally random luck.

Et vous aussi?

The three young black women on a London tube train, one evening. They were amazingly beautiful, and wearing stunning traditional Nigerian (I think) dress. Don't think I would have even had a P&S with me, and phones would have only been better-than-nothing back then... and I was even shier then than I am now, which is stupid because they probably wouldn't have minded me asking.

Yes, you're right, I am too shy for people/street... and that was the best one I never took.

Thad, Love to see...but c'est la vie...hurts don't it?!!

Just occurred to me...Photogs may get lucky and produce art...but we must be selfish too.
