Hello my blogging friends. I have a question for you.
Have you ever....Stood on your front porch for 20 minutes in the rain
trying to get a picture of the lightening as it flashes across the dark
Have you ever listened to your family yell at you when the power
goes out to get back in the house?
Yet the photographer inside you cries out from your inner most part saying...
I must get a picture of this!
So...In the darkest of night you stand in the rain snapping away on your camera
just wishing for that one shot...that one chance to capture this
dancing electricity!

So the sky flashes and you snap a picture and you end up with
something like this ^
Ok so now my hair is starting to drip rain into my face but do I
give up? Heck NO!!!

The quest continues and as the sky lights up you snap again
and get this ^ *giggles*
Then comes a slight pause in activity so you decide to go inside
for something to drink and sit for a minute or two so the family will
calm down. *insert more giggles here*
Then it starts up again so you run to grab your camera, run out on the porch,
get ready to shoot, aim high and snap another picture.
And still get nothing. So then you just start snapping pictures thinking...
"maybe I can get one by pure accident"

So 30 or so pictures later still nothing.
All I get for my effort is...
wet clothes
wet head
freezing cold feet
family upset
dogs shaking cowardly in the corner
and THIS is where I start to think...
"ok so maybe getting lightening in my lense isn't
so important afterall!"
To all who have been able to capture such beauty in
your camera lense I throw out a high 5 cause I sure
wasn't able to capture it!


  1. This is so cute and well written...I felt like I was there with you. I enjoy your blog.
