I visited the observation deck of the cruise terminal that overlooks the Elizabeth River and Crawford Bay today. It is one of my favorite places. I have shot and shown photographs from there before. This time I looked away from the river, photographing only reflections in the plate glass windows.
A man that I once worked for told me to try different things. Don't be afraid, he said, take a chance. Go out there and fail. I wish I had understood him better.
Eventually I was no longer alone on the patio. Someone else came up to enjoy the view. Now I know what I look like when I am up there dreaming.
