rearview: On the importance of hindsight

Southbound on the springtime highway and alert to Whitetail deer invading the road at the twilight hour, I checked my sideview mirror for other drivers on the road and there caught sight of the evening glow and the shine of the car’s body. Some colors shifted in the weak warm color-balanced light. The lesson here is the to not only look for photo opportunities that may lie in front of you, but also to look with equal care to left, right, bottom, up, and even behind. Photos may present themselves for capture in unexpected places, time, or angles. So it makes sense to carry a small camera at all times and to look in the opposite direction to one’s ostensible subject.
