Painterly Sky


It is not the greatest photo. The artificial border is in greater definition than the actual landscape. However, I am glad I took the shot.

I wonder what my family makes of Daddy's sudden, emergency stops on the sides of various roads, as he leaps from the car, camera in hand, to capture something on film that had already captured his fancy.

This time I was a passenger and begged my wife to pull over so that I could record this moment. I was ticking and the camera was not held very firmly, but I can look on this and remember a moment that otherwise would have flittered away from my memory like an aimless Summer butterfly.
