I visually capture the moment almost never. And yet sometimes I take a mind-blowing Florissant rainbow picture and I confuse the hell out of myself.
Case in point: This is a really great pic. I took it in the outskirts of Florissant, Colorado, at the property of some friends of mine. It was a weekend of excellent company, good wine, homemade pasta, Settlers of Catan, and Ticket to Ride.
It’s one of those scenes that needs little help from the person behind the lens. Thank God. Sure, if I were a better photographer I would probably Photoshop out the overturned chairs. I might even brighten the rainbow, green up the grass. Ultimately though I couldn’t screw up this one even if I had tried.
There’s some small comfort in that.
