I carry my camera in my car with me almost everywhere I go. Sometimes I’m out driving and I see something beautiful, interesting, or in this case just odd, and I have to stop and take a picture. If my family is with me, this can drive them nuts. My teenaged daughter is especially traumatized when crazy dad jumps out of the car and starts taking pictures in public. How humiliating and embarrassing!
But I’m stubborn and I don’t mind embarrassing her if it means getting a good shot. We can’t be shy about seizing the moment. Opportunities are fleeting–spend too much energy worrying about what others think and you will miss them.
