No photos to prove it
I went for a ski today (6) but have no photos to prove it. Sometimes you just have to leave the camera at home or in the car. As a photographer it can often be a curse as you think you need be ready at all times should a nice scene to unfold before you eyes. Imagine if the next "Miracle on The Hudson" were about to happen and you weren't ready. Those thoughts are what nightmares are made of when you are a photographer. I did not come across a "Miracle on The Hudson" today but I did bump into a happy group of school kids working their way up steep section on the cross country trail. The sun hit them in a sharp contrast from behind. It was indeed a beautiful scene. One which must be stored in my own memory instead of on a compact flash card.
