Chasing the one

“Men fail much oftener from want of perseverance than from want of talent.” — William Cobbett
The last few weeks I’ve been fighting a software “bug” at work. A long late night upgrade via remote desktop followed with today’s system reconfiguration finally gave a glimmer it may be close to being resolved.
If there’s one thing I’ve learned after all these years, enough perseverance can overcome almost anything. You can turn away, take a break, but don’t give up.
The same goes with photography. My mediocre to good photo ratio is pretty lousy — better then it use to be, but still lousy. Yet it’s that one in a hundred shot I keep chasing. Because the next photo might be “the one.”
