Weekly Photo Challenge: Opportunity

Opportunities arise unannounced. They don’t ring a bell. They just show up and we need to be ready to take advantage of them.

Yesterday, I had the opportunity to interview for a job at a local TV station. Walking into the building, I felt nerves similar to the ones I’d catch sitting on the starting line waiting for my dirt bike race to start. I remembered my dad telling me to take a few deep breaths, hoping that would calm me down so I wouldn’t lose the egg sandwich I’d scarfed just a few minutes before. Then, after the horn sounded, I’d take off, adrenaline replacing the butterflies, and forget ever feeling nervous at all.


Me #1A first through the first turn (after the butterflies escaped)

So, after introducing myself to the receptionist at the station, I took a seat in the waiting area, anxiously thumbing through a magazine while waiting for the supervisor. It felt like hours (merely minutes) before he walked out and introduced himself with a smile and a handshake. Then, he escorted me behind the scenes of the studio and into a small office where, upon taking our seats, I leaned forward, just like in racing, the butterflies escaped me and my eyes widened with interest. I was ready.

  1. Very cool pics! It must have been very difficult taking these shots because the bikes were fast-moving… but still the one who photographed got good angles!

    Hope you were hired!
