This was a few days ago when a line of heavy showers was powering down on downtown Beaumont, just as I was heading out for lunch. The buildings are so bright because the sun was still shining behind me. However, it took me a few seconds to get my camera ready for the shot. In that time, I lost the real brightness of the scene.
This was driving home one night in Beaumont. The sky just soaked itself in red. I had to pull over, jump out and take a picture. I was so afraid the light would fade befoe I could capture it. The beautiful moments in life often come upon us suddenly, with little warning. That is when our real metal is tested. Do we have the peace of mind to stop and savor it.
