I’m not very good at waiting…… I don’t know why I’m so impatient? I’m just not very good at sitting around. While my body is trying to stay still my mind is shooting through a rapid list of “other things I could, should, want to be doing.” I’m not very good in meetings that aren’t productive, standing in long lines or traffic. Who is – is what I think? 🙂
It’s sick – almost sad at times. So I’m working on this. Someone told me a long time ago in a photography class that anticipation can make or break your next BEST photo and so we should wait….then wait…and then wait some more.
My family and I went up to Lake Eufaula over Mother’s Day weekend and I took my camera to catch a sunset or two. Walked down to the shoreline and I waited….. It was quiet right before Memorial weekend chaos. It was so peaceful and I felt relaxed and calm…..and I’m glad I waited
And waited a little more…….
Because photos like these don’t make me feel like I’m in Oklahoma for just even a minute I felt like I was on the shores somewhere else. Totally worth the WAIT!
I’m ready for sweet, sweet summer time!
