    Ther Decisive Moment.jpg


    Lest you come out in arms, Silentshutter ............... I am not claiming that this shot is a decisive moment shot.

    This shot is of a gentleman looking at one of Henri Cartier-Bresson's "decisive moment" shots. It is one of the many prints of Bresson's works which were displayed at the French Cultural Centre in Belgrade recently. I was viewing it from the inside of the Centre when that gentleman in the picture was doing the same thing but from the outside (the street). Not much of a decisive moment there, but who cares ?

    Bresson's book "The Decisive Moment" is now worth a fortune but there is an online version available and it's here.

    Thanks, guys.

    David, the "talk" must have come from the ones in the frames.

    Thanks, all 3 gentlemen.

    When Maxby drops a comment, I open it with jitters and excitement in equal measures much like a school kid opening his report card. But he has been very forgiving in his comments so far. Thank you, sir

    SS, waa ....... going for a shoot tonite ?
