Photo op 7

This image from 2011 typifies why I call these posts ‘Photo op’s’. I was driving home from work and saw this happening in front of me. I whipped my car to the side of the road, grabbed my camera, and started shooting. I’ve been very pleased with this picture ever since. 

One thing I try to practice in my photography is be prepared for any opportunity. I always have my camera with me. Even if I have to use the camera on my phone (which I’ve been doing a lot lately on my Instagram) I make sure that I have a camera with me at all times. A large percentage of the pictures I take are because I had a camera with me to use when I saw something interesting. 

There are several times that I have been unprepared for something special to happen and I didn’t get the picture of it. But that is another post.
