I guess the fact that I already carry a camera 40 hours each week slows my eagerness to take photographs in my off time. But some things need to be photographed now because their beauty doesn’t last long. I can’t count the number of photos that I meant to take, only to discover that the moment had passed. I have been waiting for the fire pinks to bloom for a few weeks now. They seem to be a little later than last year, but there has been lots more rain and much less sunshine. Anyway, they finally appeared, and I got the camera out. One opportunity not missed this year!
