Here’s a little homily that you might enjoy, especially if it is snowing where you live, as it is here. Again!!!!!!!!!!
During one of my Hudson River Photography Workshops, the weather turned “bad” one afternoon. All the participants were gathered together in a cozy room for downloading and digital darkroom fun – all participants, that is, except for first-time participant Jeremy Pollack (the youngest person in the group). You see, Jeremy had split to take pictures at the New Croton Dam, which is about 10 minutes away.
During our cozy photo session, Jeremy sent me a text message: Get to the dam! Mist is great.
Well, the students wanted to stay cozy, but as the workshop leader, I felt I had to support young Jeremy. So I put on my rain gear and split . . . and took my favorite shot of the dam – and I have been photographing it for 25 years!
Obviously, the moral of this homily: When the weather goes bad, your pictures can be good!

P.S. I was so impressed with Jeremy that I invited him to be a contributor here on DPE. Don’t miss his articles. I also helped him get a book contract. See: hard work pays off!
