# 264 - "Reflections. . ."

Of course it’s all luck! - Henri Cartier-Bresson

No truer words describe this image than what Henri wrote about luck. This sailboat race in Buzzards Bay exudes pure luck! First of my good fortune was the opportunity to shoot these boats in full sail on the bay. One of the members of my club offered seats on his motorboat to head out to see these races. My name was selected to fill one of the spots on his small craft. My luck would really be challenged as the boat was buffeted by the winds and waves, which is usually not a problem, unless you are holding your camera and trying to focus on the action in the water. I was able to figure out the rhythm of the rolling surf to fire off several shots. 

It pays to be lucky after all!

Quite a reaction to yesterday's "Outer Space" from EMO, Michelle, Michael K., Phil, Joani, and Tony! Welcome back, Doris!

How about this one -
