Happiness in the Air

While looking up skateboarding terminology I came across this quote by Merrill Markoe, “Every moment of your life that is not a complete nightmare is happiness.”  Yep, that about sums it up for me right about now.  On the plus side I don't really think I have a lot of nightmares because I try to look at life from the positive side, so I guess I'm pretty happy.  But sometimes I forget that. 

These pics are of a friend of mine finding some happiness in the air.  I got out of the valley heat this past weekend and headed up to the mountains around Tahoe.  I got to catch up with some old friends and practice some action photography with my telephoto lens that has not had much use since I bought it a year ago.  I'm pretty pleased with how the shots came out.  I'd like some more blur in the background but I think I would need to invest in a longer lens.   First, I need to use the equipment I have a lot more.  Hmmm, contemplating a career shift into action sports photography.  Lol, yeah, it's been a strange day around here.
