I walk into a scene with a camera.

What are the chances of it being optimal?

It will be better if I wait,

or come back,

but what are the chances of it being optimal then?

Forget optimal, I say.

Let good be good enough.

Leave optimal for someone else to seek.

If enough of us visit the same scene over time,

some will find optimal.

But optimal is something we fall into,

not something we arrange.

If we are waiting for good enough,

and optimal shows up, well, fine.

But, if we are waiting for optimal,

we better bring a chair,

and a change of clothes,

and hope somebody

happens along with a cup of coffee

and a sweet roll.
