    So I was walking to an intermural frisbee game after work tonight, and I saw something that made me wish I had my camera with me.

    There were 5 racoons (pretty good sized ones, too) rooting around in a trash can on campus. They were underneath a street light, all looking very mischievious, pulling things out of the garbage like it ain't no thang.

    They looked so much like people (especially some of the people here in Berkeley) as they took out bags looking for food.

    Get yourself a pocket-sized compact to carry around with you. I try not to go anywhere without a camera these days. Usually either my Fuji digital or my lomo Kompact :)

    There really is no reason not to have a camera with you always. For me it was a hard habit to get into. The pay back is amazing.

    Well, yesterday I went out for a rollerblading tour once again (see_here ) and quickly let the little Powershot glide into my pocket so I would not be without a camera. And then what did I see? Deer galore (far away), cranes galore (far away) ... and no telephoto lens. I felt like I was missing out on great chances, too, despite the fact that I had a camera with me... :roll: ;).

    I'm jhust back from running in the forest. Of course when running I don't take any camera with me. So I missed two great chances for brilliant photos: The sun was shining through the trees, casting long rays or beams of sunlight which were clearly visible since the air was full of dust. One scene was a girl on with her young brother (or maybe her own offspring) on a bike and one of those sunbeams was straight on them. Really a surreal scene! And I missed it :grumpy:.

    Does that happen often to you guys as well?

    IT SURE DOES... it is being discussed in the Photographic Discussions somewhere and as soon as I find that other thread, I shall merge the two, ok. For this topic is not OFF-topic, I say: it is clearly photography-related!
