Instinct

Posted on Friday, September 9th, 2011

Dave!After I made my way back home from a late dinner, I was getting out of my car and noticed that I was bathed in a golden pink glow. The sunset was a magnificent display of muted colors and everything in sight was flooded with it. My first instinct was to grab for the pocket camera I've always got stashed in my backpack. But ultimately I fought the urge to attempt to capture an experience that you can't really capture at all. Far better to just live in the moment and enjoy it.

So I did.

And it was glorious.

And I've been regretting it ever since.

Those photos would have been great source material for some future art project but I pissed away the opportunity. Now it's dark out and all I have left is a memory that will also fade away. Eventually.

But not just yet...

    Sometimes (in fact, usually) it’s more important to experience a moment than to capture it in an image.

  2. haha I often get told off for taking photos of moments like that instead of just enjoying them..
    At least you’ll have your blog entry to remind you, but it’s really not the same thing ;)
