I taught my students last week about photojournalism and how, a lot of times, it’s a matter a luck more than anything else. Sure, you can learn the visual language with rule of thirds, leading lines and filling the frame, but in my experience it’s all about luck and being in the right place at the right time.
One of my childhood heroes Scott Summers was recently honored in the 2014 American Honda AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony for his number of national championships, which he credited to luck more than anything else.
“I have to admit though, 95 percent of what got me here tonight is luck. My story is all about luck,” Summers said. “I’m so grateful though to have lived this life that I have. What I realize now, more than ever before, is that I have been blessed with an amazing amount of luck. We lived the dream.”
I’m in North Carolina right now at my dads’s place and we’re getting ready to head off to Brown Mountain OHV Park in Collettsville so here’s hoping I am lucky enough not to crash today!
