“You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take”. – Wayne Gretzky
I don’t carry my camera with me everywhere I go, so I’m constantly seeing shots that I’d love to snap. But they’re stored in my mind. Sometimes I go back and follow up on them.
Most times not.
But this one was an easy one to go back for. It’s across the street from our place. A view that I saw all summer long while walking out to the garage for the bike or to the car. And with the colors changing and even lighting provided by the gray overcast, I knew I was ready to get a shot.
Technically flawed in many ways. But I don’t care. The crawling and spreading of the vines represent many things to me. The colors too.
Most importantly, it reminds me to take 100% of the shots.
