Ready to Capture the Moment

This photo is not possible if I did not make a concerted effort to make time for photography in my day. It's not easy, but I try to keep a camera on me for moments that catch my eye. Many days I don't take a single picture. Fortunately when I find that I really want to I'm able to because my camera is not too far away. Of course the last resort if I'm really in a bind is my camera phone, the most convenient camera most of us have.

For this image of Old Town, Alexandria looking toward the Masonic Temple I was happy to use my camera instead of my phone. I think the storm clouds really add to the drama here.
