Right Place At The Right Time

Dressed for work, I open
the front door to a sun
masked in a morning fog.
Immediately, an image came  
to mind of the Lake Woodlands 
sea serpent five miles to the east.
Quickly, I grab a camera and
a tripod knowing the image
I was seeking could be gone
by the time I got to the lake.
My camera, loaded with
a roll of twenty-four exposures
I carefully mount it onto the
tripod near the lakeshore.
Camera settings for shooting
in fog can be challenging,
so I decided to take eight shots,
bracketing each allowing for three
exposures for each shot I would take.
Days later, after the film was developed,
I get the result I wanted — eight great
photographs three of which remain mounted
in a grouping on our living room wall.
I still have the original negatives for being
in the right place at the right time.

Jostling for morning

Jostling for morning
fog dueling sun,
darkness backing fog

Standing together
silently holding back
the light of day

Until the wind
siding with sun
lifts the fog

Only to vanish
on the feet
of nomadic leaves
