2013 10-18 Hope by Watertown, South Dakota, photographer Scott Shephardf

My friend, Scott, may dispute my choice of the word “hope” in the title of this post. I have no idea if he was hopeful when he took his rod and reel out into the gentle surf at sunset on a perfect October evening along the Florida Gulf Coast.

I know he would rather catch fish than not when he casts. But I wonder if his fishing isn’t sometimes like my photo hunting: it is often less about getting a photo that is a “keeper” than it is about the hunt for the photo.

Scott didn’t catch anything of significance on this particular outing but he didn’t seem too depressed when he came back to our room. He will live to fish another day. . . .
