The father of modern photojournalism Henri Cartier Bresson is famous for his decisive moment images. Part of the reason for this was his ability to see the frame and wait patiently for the characters to fill the frame - and then, he would shoot a memorable image.
I have started to employ this technique in my photography and recently on a trip to Italy, I saw the perfect stage and waited.
Here is the stage:
A few minutes later, I could not have wished for a better character to fill the stage - this was a perfect moment.
This young boy with his camera says it all - a strange feeling came over me when I took this shot, I instantly thought of Henri Cartier in this moment and wondered if the spirit of this great master was watching. In any case, I was delighted with this moment
I hope whoever this young boy is, he enjoys his photography as much as I do.
