“There is a creative fraction of a second when you are taking a picture. Your eye must see a composition or an expression that life itself offers you, and you must know with intuition when to click the camera”. – Henri Cartier Bresson (1908 – 2004)

“Sometimes catching the moment is more important than technical perfection”. – Me.
