In town amongst high buildings, I looked up to see a spectacular blue sky with billowing cumulus infused with light. Magnificent. If only I had my camera. Would it last until I reached home? The pattern was breaking up into smaller clouds that would soon disperse but I caught something of it. That first glimpse was perfection, but there’s always a yearning for the perfect image- the one that got away.
