Something very new. The first picture that I saw about two minutes after I went out looking around. Luck. Photographer’s luck. Sometimes it happens. Usually it doesn’t. Not that quickly.
The picture. I broke the rules. Into the sun. Heavily back lighted. Very wide lens.
That’s it for today. Enjoy the picture. Enjoy the silence.
The silence didn’t last very long. The bell tolls. They toll for thee… for me. With another mass movie theater shooting in Lafayette. Louisiana.
Louisiana, the state where I live.
The numbers are shifting. So far three dead. Seven or nine wounded. Too early to know who was hurt. And, there is strange package in the shooters car… news about that later. All I know is to pray, to make an offering like these flowers, and hang on tightly to your family. It seems that we need a monthly emotional beating to make us feel better… or worse. When the beating stops.
I’m rambling. Thoughts not fully formed. Tears on my face. Eyes red. Not really grasping the meaning. Realizing that maybe I never will.
I know one thing. The one word that can save us.
