  • This wasn't the picture I was looking for. I had one evening in LA and thought to get a photo of the sunset. I was disappointed. The sunset wasn't going to be great. But I was there and clicked off a few shots anyway.

    And I got something amazing in an unexpected moment.

    You may not find exactly what you are looking for, but if you are there, you are ready, and you are open, you just might get a moment of something better than you ever imagined.
