If you were driving down the road and you saw the potential for a shot or two,
would it make you stop?
What if you had already been out of the house all afternoon doing your first official family photoshoot
and you'd already taken hundreds of photos,
would you be bothered to stop?
What if you were already feeling a bit guilty for being away from your family for so long that day
and you knew that dinner would almost be on the table by the time you got back,
would you think twice and stop?
What if you knew it was biting cold outside and the strong southerly wind would almost blow you over
the minute you got out of the car,
would you harden up and stop?
What if you were still fighting off a nasty cold and that yucky reflux that had you laid up in bed
for the better part of the week,
would you even be crazy enough to stop?
What if you were thinking - it's just another sunset, you've seen one, you've seen em all,
why should I care enough about this one to stop?
What if the waves were so fierce and the sea spray blowing so fast you knew it would get on your camera lens,
would you still stop?
So many what ifs.....
What if I'd let any one of those myriad excuses running through my head stop me?
I'd have missed all this, that's what.
It's ALWAYS worth stopping to capture the moment.
