First Sight

Another remarkable thing is how often it seems that my first really good look at something turns out to be exactly the way I want to photograph it. Exactly the spot the camera lens should be. If that first sight is from the road and I want to make the picture with a 12x20 inch view camera, it can be awkward or downright impossible to set up in that exact spot. If I want to shoot it with a camera small enough to hand hold, it's a lot easier. Just roll down the window and make the shot.
