Bucket List

The past couple of days I’ve had a mission.
Help my daughter buy a car.
She has been very specific about her wants, it’s been a bit stressful.
Well, today we were headed to check out another car and I realize that our trip will be taking us by something that I’ve always wanted to photograph.
It’s a sign.
An old restaurant sign from my past.
It was heart-shaped and the words have been busted out for years, but the sign remains like a silent sentry.
The sky was showing signs of setting up for a beautiful and colorful sunset.
I decided that I was going to get to shoot one of my photo bucket list items.
Unfortunately, the best place to see the fiery sunset through the sign would have been standing in the middle of the freeway.
So, I decided to photograph a few different variations.
In each frame, I was able to feature this heart sign and the gorgeously gradated sky.
Another photo bucket list to scratch off.
Finally, the last image was as I was ducking back into my car.
If you look closely, you’ll see a plane in the upper right area of convergence.
It was a fitting image.
Moral of the story?
When you have a chance to shoot something, do it.
Don’t wait for tomorrow. Do it now.
Be inspired!
