Day 186/Year 2
Sometimes we do stupid things. Taking this photograph could be considered one of them. At least Mr. S and our 2 friends thought it was a stupid thing. We pulled up to Job's Pond on Saturday evening, as the wind was howling, and the rain was coming down heavily. I wanted this shot. I was the only one to get out of the car..........holding my camera under my jacket to protect it from the rain. Each time I took a shot, I would turn my body around so that my back was to the wind, and I would wipe off the lens.....then quickly turn around and grab another shot. I took just a few quick shots, then ran back to the car. I opened the car door to jump in, and the wind shut it on me!!! I had to struggle to get the door opened and keep it open.
Stupid? Maybe.......but it was FUN!!!!! And, it gave us something to laugh about as we drove along. :-)
On another note, I am being told by several people that they are having a difficult time posting comments. That makes me sad. :-( I LOVE to read comments. I will see what I can do about getting this straightened out.
EDIT: Since I did some changes to the comment settings, I have received 2 comments on previous threads. Woo-hoo!!!! Just wanted to update!
