The best way to capture moments is to pay attention.  This is how we cultivate mindfulness.

I only had a short telephoto lens on Friday, so couldn’t zoom in closer.

The city, ‘lit up in golden light’, is a spectacular sight from my western suburb on a clear winter day.

Next time I’ll try and carry my long telephoto lens in my shopping trolley instead of the lightest camera & lens……….depending on how much shopping I’m doing of course   🙂


This out-of-focus shot of the city I made the same time last year gives you a sense of what Friday’s image might have been.   I was waiting at the local shopping centre bus stop and  couldn’t resist a shot even though I obviously failed to pay attention to the camera settings & got the tennis court fence in focus instead of the city centre.
