A Little Bit of Piping
OK, this was the freakin' photo that I've waited to take all summer long. At the tail end of our hike, when Jerry and I separated from our crazy wild youngins' I was able to hear the faint sound of the bag piper. Running for all I was worth toward the sound a crowd quickly gathered, the dimming light of day cast a shadow along the cliff. From afar I quickly snapped a shot. Another try bit closer rendered a message that I needed to recharge my battery. No problem...a good photographer always carries a spare. On the edge of busy Route 3, I rifled through my camera bag and inserted the back-up. It was SO dead that it did not provide me a message that I needed to charge the battery.
So...this image does not meet my high standards, but it will have to do. And once home I went right for the electrical outlet with charger and battery in hand.
