The Decisive Moment – Henri Cartier-Bresson

Photography was my first creative outlet. I started in my father’s darkroom around age 15. I grew up admiring the work of Steichen, Adams, Bourke-White, Weston, and most of all Cartier-Bresson. His “The Decisive Moment” (2) was an early inspiration for me. In the introduction he wrote…

The decisive moment … is the simultaneous recognition, in a fraction of a second, of the significance of an event as well as the precise organization of forms which gives that event its proper expression.

Everglades Canoe Trip 2005

Just got back from a trip to the Everglades with my father. We had a great time circumnavigating Whitewater Bay.

We stopped at the Roberts River, Watson River, Oyster Bay, and South Joe chickees.

2007 Note: The beautiful mangroves and chickee at Oyster Bay were heavily damaged by a hurricane. Still a nice location, but not nearly as appealing as it was back in 2005.
