What you are no different from is all the other photographers who have that same belief. I once met an exceptional photographer who believed they were always in the right place at the right time to snap the perfect shot. He had books and books of these amazing perfect shots he had taken. Exceptional photographers are different from other experienced photographers in one way only. They believe in their ability to get the exceptional shot. Some of those believe it is difficult and a high art, and so they struggle for those perfect shots. A few believe it is easy and they have the “eye” or the “nack” or the “luck” and so, for them it is easy.

You stated your belief about yourself and you related that your experience matches your belief … and so it will always be … but not all photographers have your belief and your experience of how hard it is to get a perfect shot, even in your own reality.  

It is a common human trait to assume that our own beliefs govern the experiences of everyone else too … as you so easily did seth in the story this comment is about. But in fact, they usually only govern the people immediately inside our experience, directly, or that we can observe on TV, in the news, etc. Because only those few people we have actual awareness of, and of whom are a much smaller number of people than we tend to think (count the actual people you are aware of right now), are the ones “tuned to the same vibrational channel” as we are.

well actually i did not “assume my beliefs governd the experiences of the girl who smiled in my direction”.  
i suppose that one could have interperted my story that way … but i assure you that in all probability the girl smiled for reasons completely unrelated to my appearance in her view.   In fact i automatically factored that into my appreciation of the event.  none the less i can not fail to love young red head girls who smile … and can well imagine their smile is for me alone … it is perhaps in my DNA.

I was only talking about “i am sure i am no different than any other photographer in that regard”.

strange i was thinking the other night about the nack for being in the right place at the right time.   for example were i in the right place now, i could propose my solution to #HealthInsurance to the right people and it could happen.  or for example were i in the right place i could facilitate the implementation of a two way channel of voice+natural-language into the representations of a mind. 

#OhWell i take things as they come.
