Point and....

I never question what to do, it tells me what to do. The photographs make themselves with my help.

Some how people will often get the sense that making art is a serious enterprise. Not always. My friends and I went to Carmel to photograph the Mission there early today. As we drove back we had interesting weather as it had been raining off and on all day. The cloud formations were wonderful and one of us bemoaned that our cameras were in the back of the van. I was acting as navigator for the trip, so I was able to tell them I had my Panasonic semi-point and shoot(it takes RAW and has an EVF) in my purse and decided as a joke I would take some pictures out of the passenger window while we were tootling along at 70 miles per hour. The joke was on me. In one shot as we went over a bridge I quickly framed the shot and here's what I ended up with....Sometimes the photo and its story just presents itself.
