A 52-Week Photo Journey

… Mary Nell Moore's Photography

Week 36 – #20. I Wish I Could/I’m Sorry I Did

5 Comments

While in NYC last December, there was one photo I had in mind involving light painting that I did not want to leave without taking. Let me preface this by saying little did I know that the temperature would be low 20’s in the City, not to mention what it would be down by the waterfront with the freezing wind blowing off of the water…in the teens! Did that stop me? No. Off I went with fellow photographer, Mindy Towns, to capture my photo. Honestly, I’m sorry I did and I wish I could have waited until Springtime when the weather would be more pleasant. With my teeth chattering, blurry eyes as a result of tears running down my cheeks, toes frozen, flashlight ready and fingers so numb I could not feel the shutter release button, I pressed it quickly only once without looking through my viewfinder. Grabbing our equipment, we ran as fast as possible in our frozen state up to the street corner to hail a cab to take us back to the City and our warm apartment. Those of you who know us can visualize this scene, can’t you? Imagine my disappointment when I transferred my photos to my computer for viewing! In my near death state from being almost frozen, I was much too quick and left off part of what I wanted to photograph…part of the “U” and all of the “L.” When we return later this year, I will go back and re-take my photo…much better this time and more than one frame! Lesson learned!

A true Southerner, I was born in Georgia but lived most of my adult life in Chattanooga, Tennessee. In 2001, my husband and I retired and moved to beautiful Sarasota, FL. We quickly realized that we were not retirement material and could not play golf two or three times a week so we got our real estate licenses and affiliated with Coldwell Banker on Longboat Key. My love for photography is very beneficial to me when photographing interiors and exteriors of the homes we list. Other than photography, I have a keen interest in genealogy and golf (whenever I can find the spare time from our real estate practice).
