As Alec Halstead, my life has been a series of battles, from the frontlines of war to the daily skirmishes of civilian life. But through it all, my camera has been my steadfast companion, a source of solace amidst the chaos.

The Mid Hudson Bridge, with its elegant arches and timeless beauty, has been a subject of fascination for me. I've captured its essence countless times, each photograph a testament to its grandeur. And yet, there was one shot that stood out—a shot I almost missed due to unforeseen circumstances.

After retiring from the military, I found myself running a power plant in New York City, working grueling 12-hour shifts that left me exhausted but fulfilled. On this particular night, I had agreed to cover a friend's shift, eager to earn a few extra bucks before heading to my future wife's place.

As I approached the Mid Hudson Bridge, my car suddenly betrayed me, its warning lights flashing like beacons of distress. With a sinking feeling in my stomach, I pulled over to the side, the cold seeping into my bones as I assessed the damage—a seized idler pulley and a broken serpentine belt.

Despite my frustration, I remained determined to make it home. But as I attempted to restart the car, it refused to budge. With no other option, I called a friend with a tow truck, resigning myself to an hour-long wait in the bitter cold.

As I stood on the side of the road, the first hints of dawn painting the sky with delicate hues, I felt a sense of peace wash over me. Despite the inconvenience and discomfort, there was a beauty to be found in this moment. I walked to a spot where I could see the quiet majesty of the bridge silhouetted against the rising sun, framed by a swirling mass of clouds.

With trembling hands, I raised my camera to capture the scene before me, each click of the shutter a prayer of gratitude for the serenity amidst the chaos. But just as I was lost in the moment, my camera betrayed me, its battery drained of life.

Defeated, I returned to my car to await the arrival of my friend. And yet, when I finally had the chance to review the few shots I managed to capture, I was awestruck. In those fleeting moments, I had captured not just the beauty of the bridge, but the resilience of the human spirit—the ability to find light in even the darkest of times. And for that, I was grateful.
