missed the shot
hate when that happens
camera is on hand
not in hand
but on hand
an opportunity presents itself
what do I do?
I drop the ball

there I was in front of the White House....
got my background...
looking for my foreground
took a few shots
tucked the camera away
then just as I am about to leave I see TAR moving down the road
on his fixed gear
rolling on one wheel
holding a wheelie on his fixie for 20-30 yards
enough time for me to pull out the camera
take off the lens cap
hit the mulitiple exposures button
then hit the shutter button snapping multiple shots
pointing into the sun I could not see the display
unable to see what I was cropping in the camera
you already know it
I missed the shot
