This is all you need to know. About anything.
This is Mardi Gras. In kind. And, in spirit. A son pushing has dad. A krewe reaching out to give them beads. A feeling of oneness. Togetherness.
This moment. This place. This time.
As you know, I don’t chimp. I never look at my pictures while I’m working in the field. With this moment, what would it have mattered if I looked and saw that I missed it? It’s never going to happen again. Luckily, I didn’t. I nailed it. I didn’t know that I actually made the picture until I opened up my downloads. There it was.
Enjoy it. I know I do. I won’t pass that way again. Ever.
You know about the picture. You don’t know about the entire shoot. I had a night for the ages. I followed my usual routine. I arrived early. Had a coffee in a local shop. Started to look around. I was in my zone. For the entire time. I don’t know why. I just was. I don’t question these things. I just ride them.
Not to worry. I’ll show you as much of last night as I can over the next couple of weeks. I would have shown you more pictures today, but sometimes when I make a picture I really like, I want to call attention to it. It, and it alone.
One more thing. Usually I’m pretty sore after walking about six miles on our streets. Not today. I’ve already recovered. I feel good and ready to go out again tonight.
