Wait for it, wait for it…

On a recent workshop, I had a (small) Eureka moment! Henri Cartier-Bresson called it “The Decisive Moment” while Charlie Waite describes being in “the presence of some wonderful alignment of events”. To me, this particular Eureka moment (a minute or two after the image above was taken) suddenly made perfect sense of these statements and […]

New Tracks

As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, I try not to shoot “honey pot” images. You know, those that you regularly see on Flickr and on forums, and are actively sought out by photographers as “bucket list” locations, often shot from exactly the same angle as several thousand before them, many of whom are trying to […]
