I have decided to "upgrade" my camera to the same status as my purse--that being a "total necessity". My purse contains my "lifeline" to the world--my driver's license, my CREDIT CARDS, my medical and car insurance cards, my keys, money (yes, some people still use it), and those "more than important things"--makeup, a brush, a mirror, and Tic-Tacs. I never leave my house without my purse!!
As I was pulling out of the driveway last night, I noticed the sky was absolutely beautiful with great gashes of pink slashed through it. I pulled back in and hurried to get my camera, but by the time I got my camera, found a place to photograph the sky without light poles, roofs, and other urban trappings, the luscious pink coloring had faded. I still thought the shots I took were beautiful in an eerie sort of way,though not as colorful as they could have been. I have decided that from now on I'm going to "sling my camera over my shoulder" just as I do my purse every time I walk out the door. Then, I will always be "camera ready".
