Shoot......No Canon

Tonight we had a sunset that would make my friend Leigh grab her tripod and run for the waters edge and spend 45 minutes shooting images..........which she would post and get hundreds of "likes".....maybe even win a competition.

The clouds were dramatic, the sun was low, the underside of the clouds glowed pink, the sky was streaked with orange bands trailing into blue skies.......I was in awe of it all the way home form Jazzercise.

Enough already, just post a photo and be done.

And therein lies the rub.

My trusty but dependable and trustworthy, fit-in-my-purse canon(pictured above) is in St.Brieuc, Brittany, France.

With Lindsay (who is hopefully putting it to excellent use!).

I am camera-less for 2 whole weeks.

In the Fall.

When the light is so special and the trees are all turning dramatic colours of yellow and orange and red..

So there is no photo of that incredible sunset tonight. And you know what.......... it was no less enjoyable.  I just let myself revel in watching it as I walked and drove.  I stood on the sidewalk and drank it all in.  I can still see it now.  It made my day.

I am not going to kid you ........I will be very pleased to have my canon back, to get back to taking photos but I am sort of enjoying paying closer attention to what I am seeing and enjoying it instead of just racing to capture it.
