Your missed opportunities?

But which are out of your control.

This is just a thread for some fun discussion. I was driving home yesterday early afternoon from having been out taking a few street photos. While in my car waiting at traffic lights, I saw a man with a white stick in front of a shop with a small lit neon sign next to him and he was lighting a cigarette. Wouldn't necessarily have been a great shot but could have potentially been interesting.

But my point is that there was no way to get the shot because I was in the car with the camera packed away. Could have got my phone camera out I suppose but it wouldn't have really cut it.

Have other members here spotted great street moments that they've not been able to capture because of circumstances like this?
