Happiness is a warm gun

I'm convinced that lighting, composition and attention to detail are all part of being a great photographer. But I also believe that knowing when to snap a shot is of equal importance.

On a recent class trip to Venice Beach, my oldest daughter caught this enterprising young man.

I can't tell you how happy I was to see that she recognized the black humor of the situation.

I was even happier to learn that she rewarded the young man's creativity with the remaining 3 quarters in her pocket.

I would encourage her knack for photojournalism. What a great daughter you have. And you posting her photo speaks volumes of what a great Dad you are.

You give me far too much credit.
I just exploited her funny picture and squeezed an easy posting out of it.

But she'll appreciate the kind words.
