Near the end of yesterday morning’s walk, I spotted some False Spirea.

There was a gentle breeze and the fragile blossoms were moving with every breath of wind.

Past experience told me that this would likely result in a blurred photo.

I decided to set my focus anyways and wait for a moment of calm. That brief moment happened and I caught only one photo before the next little breeze made the sprig of blossoms dance again – as if taunting me. I decided to just hope for the best with the one capture and was pleasantly surprised.

To me, this little success was a pretty good analogy for life.

Photography Note: Even if conditions aren’t perfect, take the photo anyways and hope for the best. For the one time out of maybe 50 tries, one good result makes all of the other not-so-good ones worthwhile.

“Try again; you have millions of alternatives. Fill yourself with the bullets of hope and you will kill failure with one shot.”
