As I was about to enter Abbatoir Restaurant in Atlanta I suddenly noticed this extraordinary sight before me: the moon rising over the downtown highrises.
In a panic I scrambled to locate my camera, then realized that it was hanging around my neck.

Utilizing my detailed knowledge of my camera’s completely automated technology I exposed this one photo—and this one only.

Over the succeeding days I’ve had time to contemplate just what makes this image stand out, while others, alas, so clearly fail. Some might call it fortune or luck, but for me it was simply a matter of being there, and being prepared.

Reminiscent of a remarkably similar Fresno incident.
