Last year my wife and I were looking for Lake Apopka; we took a wrong turn and we ended up in Lake Harris, a chain of lakes northwest of Orlando, Fl. The sun was setting and this is one of the photos I took. I particularly like this one because of the human figure in the photo. Perhaps, he is texting his wife that he’ll be home pretty soon. Who knows?
Before we left, I asked him if he caught any fish. He said not today but he is happy. Taking a photo is like fishing. The real fun is not in the result but in the process. Every single time I perceive something I love and my camera is at hand, my heart beats faster. It’s like being in front of someone I love. When I am in the act of pressing the shutter with my finger, that’s the moment I am truly alive.
Life is short. One should be doing the very thing he loves to do. As for myself, it is photographing. What is yours?
