I am often surprised & delighted with what I call ‘throw away’ shots. Not intentional, just shooting from the hip (or over my shoulder). When they capture whatever inspired me to take that impulse shot it’s a refreshing treat. It’s when emotion and a lens smoosh together without framing, planning or logic interfering.

What came through was a the blur of youth, bells, whistles, lights, emotions whirling around. I wish I could jump back into that time. At least my eye remembered and gifted me with a photograph that captured a bit of the magic.
