“Do you want to go somewhere?” My boyfriend asked yesterday afternoon. With our jobs, our weekend often falls in the middle of the week, so this was technically our Saturday. Normally, we can spend our day playing video games or taking care of any housework, with the primary objective of just being able to spend time together on our days off.
I immediately had a thought to go shooting. I had gotten an 85mm macro lens from him for Christmas that I hadn’t really had the opportunity to use, with the exception of some cupcake photos for Baking Day a few weeks ago. Even though with was raining pretty consistently, (It certainly wasn’t just sprinkling, but it wasn’t a torrential downpour either) we got my camera set up and took off for the park a few blocks away from our apartment.
The rain worked out fairly well, got a few cool shots of puddles, water pouring out of stone walls. Got more comfortable with changing settings as I go to get the look I wanted.
After our walk, we went in the mall downtown and used their skywalk (a series of covered bridges, connecting multiple buildings) to get as close to our apartment as possible. On the way home it started to get dark, and he looked at his phone.
“It’s 4:45! Guess what we can do?!”
Background story: There is one particular bridge in the skywalk that is right above one of the busiest streets downtown. It often has the most traffic of people who work either downtown or up North, and are trying to travel up the hill to the South. I’ve always wanted to bring my camera and tripod to this particular bridge, and capture a long-exposure shot of cars as they drive by.
Although we didn’t have the tripod, we had the camera. And the perfect time.
And finally, after talking about it for well over a year, I got my shot(s):
I plan on going back with the whole kit, just to maximize my options. But for talking about this for so long and then having it not only work, but turn out looking fairly awesome? That’s just icing on the cake.

Fun fact: the blending of idioms or cliches is called a malaphor.
My personal favorite is “We’ll burn that bridge when we get to it.”
I looked it up b/c that was a very familiar idiom and how could it be wrong but then
yeah wow that’s spot on perfect
