I just figured out that Scott Loftesness and I have been friends for about 25 years, and during that time our respective careers and business paths have crossed many times: Aviation, online communities, venture-backed startups, financial services and general geekery. Scott is often a step ahead of me, as is the case with photography. I got re-started in photography about two years ago, only to discover — no surprise — that Scott was already there.
I snagged a copy of the above photo from Scott’s blog. Make sure you go there to see the full-sized version. But also check out his latest post in which he adroitly describes the serious amateur photographer’s plight spending a day trying to get The Shot. Scott has been getting The Shot more and more.
