A Hurricane's Value

I had 25 gallons of water and a go-bag ready for Irma-the-hurricane. I had my bow and arrow at my side -- its sharp tips on -- ready to shoot the wind or something, I guess.

I kept photographing my surroundings while fully aware that my college friends were being flown over me to shoot the storm in south Florida.

I'm fond of my Mamiya's shutter click when it fires. And I like having the images stored on plastic film strips as if those moments were just cut from life. So, I guess value is having the better moments stored on something I can hold in my hands when a reality surrounds me that seems to wobble at times.
