I've never photographed a humpback whale, what with them being rare in these waters. A couple have been hanging around some 40 miles from my house, so I resolved to photograph them this weekend. Until the moment came to actually leave.
"It's too hot....and it's Seafair weekend so I'll be overwhelmed with stupid boaters...and I'll get boarded by the Coast Guard...plus my data is cold so there won't even be any whales...whine whine whine..." and so forth.
This happened exactly where I would have been exactly when
I would have been there. What was I doing? Watching TV.
