My friend Kim and I had scheduled breakfast and camera pointers. We've been trying to do it for months but things kept getting in the way.
It was a beautiful day, blue sky making a perfect backdrop for impressive Madrid landmarks. I cleaned off my SD card so I could snap at will. I was feeling impressively organized, collecting everyone's monthly transportation passes so I could buy October's pass.
I wanted to take the bus but traffic was crazy, so I dutifully descended into the metro.
Somewhere between Lista and Goya, I remembered the camera battery. It was all charged up so I could again, shoot at will. It was also still in the battery charger, at home. My camera was in my bag.
