Anyone who has ever flyfished knows, that when you first start out.... it’s a pain in the ass. You’re constantly whipping off your flys, getting snagged on everything imaginable INCLUDING yourself,
your fiancé and your dog, getting
tangled up and your pole is like 10 feet long.
But if you stick with it, it pays off in the long run.

It’s insane the amount of inspiration and drive it takes to get out for photo opportunities like this. I’ve always found getting over that hump to be the most inspiring part of the journey. The effort that went into just getting here and setting up shop at the right time; I’ll never take these opportunities for granite! Completely worth the outcome and the $7 toll!

I see her standing there motionless, gazing at the reflection on the concert hall. I wonder what she is thinking and I'm a bit jealous. I used to frequently catch myself staring at people or things, though not seeing them but only scenes created in my imagination while lost in deep thought. That happens less now. I have more "thought snacks," quick bites between tasks, or checking email (or Instagram of course). I remember myself as young boy, laying on the lawn staring at the blue summer sky with Ace our German Shepherd resting beside me, never interrupting me as I thought my thoughts. A bit like Huck Finn, who "laid there in the grass and the cool shade, thinking about things and feeling rested and ruther comfortable and satisfied." Perhaps the new year will include a goal to stare more. I'll have to think about that.
