Sometimes, quite literally, you can be driving down the road only to have an unexpectedly fortunate event occur. Serendipity, a fortunate stroke of chance, certainly favors the prepared.
Early one Sunday morning, returning from a sunrise shoot, I was blown away as we came over a hill to see this view laid out before us. By far, this was the cloudiest day I have yet seen in Austin, Texas. The clouds lay low, skirting the ground, with the sun streaming in from above.
Like light filtering through rippling water, the rays of light were constantly shifting as the clouds made their way across.
Life, like a box of chocolates, never lets you know beforehand what lay just ahead.
