You can’t always get what you want

but if you try sometimes, you just might find, you get what you need.

That’s the way the Rollei goes… you win some, you lose some, or at least you get something entirely different. This may not be the photo my mom was hoping for when she stood beside this ginormous geranium bush in SF’s Botanical Gardens… it seems my Rollei was tired of taking boring touristy photos. The… “here’s me next to the___” photos… so it added some flare, literally. Good thing this wasn’t for a real assignment, don’t know that an editor would take this, but you never know.
