Is this a cool car or what? I took this shot in Salt Lake last week where there was NO snow! It was a wonderful spring day.
The missed opportunity was catching the four young men cruising in the car with their sunglasses on. I couldn't get my camera out quickly enough. When I went in to the lobby to check out from the hotel I hoped to capture them later, but upon my return the car was gone. I know they would have willing posed for me and it would have made an entertaining shot, but alas--I missed the opportunity.
But, it makes me think, how often do we miss opportunities in life? Sometimes it's a small one, sometimes it alters our entire life's direction. I'm getting old enough to be able to look back at certain crossroads and wonder, what would have happened if I had taken another path? Of course I'm who I am today because of my choices, wise or foolish. At least I've learned from most of mistakes, picked myself up and kept going. It's important to pay attention to the signs along the way.
With the change in weather I found inspiration to get out my camera for the first time in awhile. I hate to miss those golden opportunities. The next shots were caught this morning as I headed out the driveway to go to work.
This tom turkey has been seeking opportunities with the hens in our yard, displaying his feathers and strutting his stuff. I haven't seen him get lucky...yet!
