The photo that got away was probably more interesting than the one I took. I came out of the house, and was surprised to see a trace of snow on the car windows. I was pretty sure my wife, who had left for work before sunrise, had not noticed the skiff of snow, and she told me later that she hadn't. So I pulled out my phone and snapped a shot.
And IF I had noticed the sunrise reflection in the window, I would have returned to the house and grabbed my "real" camera to see what I could do with it. It probably would have been more interesting than the skiff of snow.
Teresa Boardman recently posted her thought that great photos are all around us, if we would only see them. I don't know if this could have been a great photo, but I think it could have been more than an accidental photo, if I had been alert. Well, maybe alerter...
Now I will be stalking my car at sunrise looking for the one that got away.
I find the corollary in real estate work. We are so focused, we often miss the fact that there is business all around us.
