Mistake helps me find my 100th

posted on 26th of april, 2010

Not long ago I had hit a brick wall when it came to thinking of what I could photograph. I was stuck at 94 uploads.

I studied the portfolios of others and it was like learning the "abc's" all over again. Some photographers here are geniuses.

Last week I was on vacation so I planned to get up early and head out with the camera to find my perfect photo. After driving around for quite awhile I found my shot. I pulled the car over and set up the camera on a tripod. Darn, I forgot the battery in the charger at home.

I raced home to get the battery and headed out again. I tried a shortcut and came across a golf course. Hmmm, I wondered. I walked around the greens.

I was on the fence as to whether this was my perfect shot.

Then I saw it. The perfect shot to remember as my 100th.

What better than a chair to sit in to enjoy the view of the golf course?

I'm so excited about this 100th upload because not to long ago this goal seemed unreachable. I did run out and buy a backup battery to have with me and now I'm off to try for 200!

Congrats! You are way ahead of me- I kind of hit the same place and am struggling, but we are in VA for the summer and there are lots of inspirations.

the same thing happened to me too - so frustrating, unfortunately i didn't get the chance to go back home for the battery, i haven't got a spare one yet - still saving up :) it's def taught me a lesson, well done on reaching your 100th upload - good luck for the next 100 :)

Serendipity strikes again!

I've started putting a spare batter and flash card in my glove compartment of my vehicle. I also keep an AC/DC battery charger in the car too (two; one for the camera battery, and one for AA cells for the flash).
