These photos were taken on the same December day, along the coast in southern Oregon from Brookings north to Port Orford. —RB

what the camera saw
I regard this as a once-in-a-lifetime photo, but not my lifetime. I get no credit for it. I didn’t even know I had taken it. I tried to catch the waves crashing on the Port Orford jetty. But my camera’s shutter button is a rebel and doesn’t click until it damn well wants to. I can only submit requests for quick-action photos. This is the last photo I took, the “I give up” photo. It wasn’t until that evening that I saw it, and discovered the camera doesn’t really need me.
