The photograph itself doesn't interest me. I want only to capture a minute part of reality.

It was a dark and dreary night, when....

It rained last night…well early evening. What’s this got to do with photography? Well, when someone becomes complacent and sits back and waits for the weather to become ‘right’, well you will end up S.O.L. a large percentage of the time…especially here in Maine. There’s that cliché saying; “If you don’t like the weather in Maine, just wait a minute”. Its very true and usually it ends up being a lot crappier! In other ramblin words…don’t wait, get out there and shoot. There are pictures to be made in that miserable weather, throw on that raincoat, grab that parker, slather on that sunscreen and bug juice. Get out there and create some kick-ass images! Well, I came back in after shooting during the rain…wet and grousing, wiping the equipment down. I downloaded the pictures…they all sucked big time! Oh well, if hadn’t gotten off my comfy chair encrusted backside I would not of even had anything at all to cull out……and would have been sound asleep in front of the flat panel god. Next time for sure!
