The short dark days must be getting to me! With apologies to Shakespeare and Hamlet:-
To shoot or not to shoot - That is the question.
Whether tis better that my pride should suffer
Harsh comment and my peers derision,
Because I photograph in poor conditions
An image, that cries out to be recorded,
To live, to influence, to have existence:
Or that I leave my camera in its case
For fear I can’t achieve the right exposure
Or get the perfect composition.
That way my reputation photographic,
Stays intact, and not a word of criticism
Do I need to take. Except perhaps in quiet moments
Memories of opportunities I lost.
