Salt, pepper, or both?
You're here because you just dropped one of the munchkins off at a program nearby, and you're just far enough away from home that it isn't worth the extra drive. And you have contributing any more to global warming than you already are.
So you find a Tim Hortons nearby (if you're American, substitute Dunkin Donuts or, if you move a bit upscale, Starbucks) and hang out with a spot of breakfast for a bit. Moments like this - namely, free, unstructured time - are rare. So you grab them.
And if you're anything like me, while you're grabbing these quiet moments you also try find a way to get some impromptu, silly-themed photography done. Because there's always room for impromptu, silly-themed photography. Because life is short.
Looking at the not-quite-perfect photo above, it isn't so much the composition - flawed - and exposure - blown - that stick with me. It is the immediate connection to a unique moment in a unique place. To a morning when munchkin had a great time in the country with his friends, and I managed to find a way to never forget this brilliantly lit, cold autumn morning.
Your turn: how do you remember an otherwise forgettable day?
