The Window

Andy | Thursday, January 07, 2016 | | Best Blogger Tips

There is a creative fraction of a second when you are taking a picture. Your eye must see a composition or an expression that life itself offers you, and you must know with intuition when to click the camera. That is the moment the photographer is creative. Oop! The Moment! Once you miss it, it is gone forever. - Henri Cartier-Bresson

  2. Great reflection Andy. The shop on the other side looks a bit empty. Also a victim of the economical crisis ?

  3. That's exactly what makes photographing so nice, catching the moment and feeling the excitement when you were there at the right moment.

  4. I cannot calculate how many times I have missed a photo because I didn't click the shutter!

  9. Very interesting buildings in the background, it's a shame the closest one vacant. An old department store perhaps?

  11. This reflection just sucks your eye into the scene. Never know who is looking at you through all those windows in the reflection.

  12. The depressing thing is that so often we recognize that instant but we raise our camera too late, or the settings on the camera weren't right for the light, or . . . . . . . . . . ..

  13. You were on this one just right. And that quote is so timely and perfect I thought at first that you'd written it. (And I agree with Betsy...all the snaps that got away...)
