While eating dinner last evening, my eyes repeatedly gazed at a particular sight I saw out my window and I thought, “I wonder if I could capture what I am seeing with my camera.” I looked and wondered all the time as I ate. When finished with dinner, I went to get my long lens and focused on the scene before my eyes. What I saw on my LCD screen made me smile hugely.
Oh! How beautiful!!
That got me thinking how I would like to capture those Clematises I saw through my window as well. I wondered if I could get them from the angle from where I was sitting. So, after dinner I got my macro lens and out the door I went. I shot.
Then this …
and as I did I heard a foreign noise in the sky. Looking up I saw motorized parachuters. Never before have I seen this sight! Gosh darn it I didn’t have the right lens! Quickly I ran back in the house, grabbed my long lens and out the door like a flash I went!
First this guy went sailing high overhead ….
and then this guy.
Can you imagine the magnitude of freedom these men were feeling?
Jumping up and down with sheer joy, my heart soared with these men as I shouted YES! Again, again I say I was in the right place at the right time! If I had not followed through with trying to capture the sight my eyes saw through my window during dinner, and then go outside to capture my Clematises, I would have missed this golden opportunity. Now do you believe me when I keep repeating myself that Mother always always gives me Gifts?
