Unique moment up in smoke


“We all know the dangers of sequels. Lightning doesn’t strike twice in the same place too often, and I think you’ve got to move beyond it, go the extra mile and have the courage not to just repeat the first one”. —  Colin Firth.

We all have been told repeatedly that it is dangerous to stand under a tree during a thunderstorm. It is doubly dangerous to do so and hold an umbrella at the same time. These two women were standing in a nearby schoolyard last week during such a storm.I wanted to capture their photo. I positioned the camera just so and as I snapped the image the flash initiated. The woman appears to have been zapped by a lightning bolt. That is only an optical conclusion. — gc

Quote of the week: “What is true is already so. Owning up to it doesn't make it worse. Not being open about it doesn't make it go away. And because it's true, it is what is there to be interacted with. Anything untrue isn't there to be lived. People can stand what is true, for they are already enduring it.” ― Eugene T. Gendlin, Focusing
