The Decisive Moment

One of my favorite Photographers (Henri Cartier-Bresson) used this expression to sum up a great Photograph…

“the decisive moment, it is the
simultaneous recognition, in a fraction
of a second, of the significance of an
event as well as the precise organization
of forms which gives that event
its proper expression.”

And…I think he nailed it. 🙂
