    Interesting book, with some quite moving & strange stories by notable photographers on this very subject.
    You know, one of the benefits of having a Kindle is that I don't have to wait for shipping.

    Thanks for the heads up. I just finished American Gods by Neil Gaiman, so this will be my recovery from that WTFery.
    No idea what's going to happen next, but I'm hoping it involves being wrist deep in chemicals come the weekend.

    One of the reasons I'm flailing around attempting to find a 35mm camera again is because, yes, I've regretted not taking a picture.

    I was coming home from Fort Dodge one night in the early fall. Sun was setting behind me as I drove, so it was casting light in this AMAZING way over the cornfield on my left. It looked like the field was covered in gold. I wished for a camera with Velvia then. Heh.

    When I had the Nikon FE with the 50mm lens, it went with me everywhere. I very rarely missed a shot I wanted to take. I'm hoping that I get the same results when I start doing it again.

    Every photographer does.

    The time we didn't bother to stop the car. The time we didn't feel like changing lenses and nailing the shot. The time we knew we should take our camera with us and didn't want to bother with it.

    Actually though, some of our best work is still on the negs or computer, that we haven't spent enough time with to make a great print of. Or somehow passed it by completely when we were editing.

    Those ones are the real tragedies because we actually have the shot, we just don't know it.
    I couldn't think of anything witty to say so I left this blank.

    Yes...all the "historic" shots I could have taken, all the steam locos, street scenes, long-gone buildings, etc., etc., .....all seen everyday as a young child, before I was interested in photography.
    And all the scenes I could have shot on Kodachrome!

    This happens all the time. Usually it is because I just hesitate. Photographing on the street and being scared someone is going to punch me in the face.
    I do think though that our minds make the pictures much better than they really would be, and only one self can see them. Not that bad either.

    No. There have been too many times I have seen something that looked so great it seemed like a gift from the photo god only to find I couldn't get it to work in the camera. Seeing something and passing it by without trying to work it with my camera only leaves me feeling there is lots to do out there. Actually when I go to a specific area and really like it and spend some hours there I like to leave feeling like there is more to do later. A reason to go back. There is one regrettable thing in that nothing ever stays the same.
