I’m not very good at choreographing photos. My most interesting photographs seem to come out of unexpected moments, unplanned outcomes. Being able to capture something memorable on film (or in pixels?) is — one might say — the “cherry on top” of being in the right place at the right time.
Arriving early for an appointment and waiting in my car, thinking I should walk around the neighborhood to look for something interesting to photograph. And then a man bicycles past me with a dog riding on his shoulder.
Taking a mundane photo of flowers and being photobombed by a curious fur ball.
Looking out my window by happenstance and encountering a beautiful sunset.
Taking a photo of a bridge, only to discover I have captured a snow-covered mountain in the background.
Okay, I’m joking with that last one, but the beautiful mountain view was the “cherry on top” of a wonderful walk along the river with family.
One could say that the accidental photo ops are sometimes the most “fruitful.”
