Today I wanted to walk home from work so I did. I didn't have my camera with me but as I walked along I started noticing potential snaps. Then I said to myself "no the light is not right for this one." "Man that one would be a good HDR shot...wonder what the best angles would be?"...etc. All kinds of things were presenting themselves to me.
It is like I slipped in the zone or something and despite not carrying a camera with me (actually I had a phone camera with me but I didn't think to use it) I was doing photography. In retroflection I think time sort of stopped awhile for me as I was walking along today.
