Everything was there...cute couple, dancing the night away in a old metal building with gritty light, my favorite. They had let me into there world and now all I have to do is shoot it. I knew this was special moment and I started riding the motor. The music was so loud no one could hear the camera and I shot and shot. My old decrypted 5d chugging along at 3200iso my favorite lens (35 1.4), aperture wide open...hail mary time. Most ever frame was out of focus, I knew it would be, but you always hope. These newer cameras would have nailed it. I walked away feeling defeated. I had captured many touching moments but all for naught. I tell myself next time, next time the magic will happen.
I went to an apartment fire today and the building was a total loss. But I saw a grandmother today who was filled to brim with the love of Jesus. Her personality was infectious and said "today everyone here was blessed, no one was injured". "So lets celebrate, God is good". She was a quite an influence on everyone around her. "Everything gonna work out "she said "you'll see". Not many times you leave a fire with a good attitude.
