Sunsets are good. They are almost always good. But, some are better than others. Last night at Younger Grandson’s football practice, I was watching him work through drills and play practice. I noticed the sunbeams through a gap in the clouds and pointed them out to Daughter and Older Grandson.
I then withdrew the Leica from its pouch and made a few captures. One of my personal goals is to make one decent image every day. I have not been doing this in any disciplined manner. If I aspire to be a photographer (of any sort), then I must continue working on my craft. Part of that is the technical — doing the technical part correctly. Part of it is artistic — finding the composition, the light, and the subject that speaks to my Muse. Part of it is discipline — getting out every day to find something to capture, even if it’s something as commonplace as a sunset.
When I reviewed my captures this morning, this one made me think of the Fantastic Four’s Johnny — “Flame On!”
