As you may have guessed by the title, this shot was taken in front of the west wall of the Baptist School on Meeting Street. I just thought the lines and color of this were interesting.
This is my fourth day into the project. I watched a video today (for school) about Henri Cartier-Bresson. He was leafing through some of his photographs, and talking about how they happened. He’d say, “Oh, this one was an accident.” Then the next one: “This one was yes, no, yes, no, wait, YES!” talking about snapping the shutter at just the right time. I love Cartier-Bresson’s work. Who doesn’t, really? At the end of the video, Elliott Erwitt came on, and talked a little bit about Bresson, and photography. About what Cartier-Bresson’s work had meant to him. Then he said, that photography isn’t so much about “how much” you know. It is more about being able to see.
This is what I am trying to do with this project. It is really an exercise for me. Like push-ups. I am working on being aware, being in the moment, with the moment. Looking. Seeing.
