    We had a rainy day and I looked out to see a beautiful picture with the setting sun and the breaking clouds. Blues and grays in every shade. My V17.5 was on my camera which would have been perfect. Sadly, I stopped in the bathroom and the shot was gone in just a 2 - 3 minutes. I should have known better. :doh:

    sacrificed the shot for a moment of glory on the porcelain throne
    we must live in the present

    I'm slowly learning, for interesting subjects that might move or be obstructed, to shoot first before worrying about composition, etc... Too many street shots missed due to cars or other people getting in the way while I'm trying to compose.

    take it just as good lesson for the future.
    This is very important part of your preparation. it's like check your camera's battery, lenses and filters.
    go to the bathroom, put proper pants and jacket on.

    I rolled out of bed, saw the mist on the lake and the sun coming up, and knew that if I delayed more than just a minute the mist would all be burned off, so I grabbed my GX7 and out I ran...

    Hmmm. I wonder if I could do that on my busy suburban street? I am guessing that a phone camera would capture me and I would be an internet session, probably for the worse. :whistling: Nice backyard by the way, is that home or a vacation home?

    Thanks! It is my parents' cottage in northern Ontario. I'm a city slicker most of the time, so I enjoy the reprieve when I can take it.
