*”Did you make a photograph today…?” Did you see the light? Not worry about which playoff ballgame, reality “Tee-Vee” show, or other such nonsense is on tonight…? Did you trust your equipment and instincts to make just one frame while anticipating such a moment – yet constantly observing a scene like this, marveling at the late afternoon sunlight and shadows…? *(If you’ve answered yes to any one of these questions, then at least for today – you my friend, are a photographer…) -cg.
