Pulitzer Thoughts

I was enjoying the evening and the beautiful Simmons Bayou sunset when it occurred to me I was being attacked by a swarm of man-eating mosquitoes. Then I thought of those famous wartime photographers risking their lives for that one photo that vaults them to the top of a Time Magazine front page. So I stuck it out, they were after all, little bugs armed with little pin heads. So I buried the fleeing instinct and kept shooting. The scene was just like I wanted with dark clouds and orange pumpkin colored sky. A perfect seasonal sunset, with a few itchy irritations.
