So much about photography is being in the right place at the right time. Unless you go out and put yourself in proximity to the subject matter that you are interested in, it is impossible to get images that you are happy with. In fact, I find myself walking the same routes, over and over again, when I know that there is a shot waiting to happen somewhere along it. Sometimes, that persistence pays off, and sometimes the stars just never align for you and you have to move on. These three images are shots where I feel that everything clicked while I was there.
