It’s late Saturday night. Music playing. Glass of wine on the coffee table. Light low in our sitting room. I am frozen in place DSLR clamped stiffly in hand. Arms braced against my sides to minimize the wobble during the long exposure – 2 seconds. I’m doing my photography homework. Playing with time. I try to capture the liquid intensity of flame in our fireplace as the cold huddles in and the patterns made by the sleek smooth sliding of fish through water in our mesmerizing fish tank.
Its frustrating and elusive.
But its late and my husband is back from a week away. So I will leave perfection for another day. When I have my tripod!
