Hesitation

February 06, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

 

All forms of art involve capturing a moment in time, but especially in the case of photography, the moment in time can never be duplicated exactly. So why do I sometimes hesitate when I see a scene like this? Fortunately, I did not this time. I saw the disconnected young men in the foreground and then the engaged posture of the older men beyond. What could have been just a snapshot immediately evolved into a story, perhaps a commentary. One shutter click later, I was noticed by the four men. Though they smiled and seemed pleased that I was photographing them, the moment and the story had ended. As an artist, I want my work to have meaning that stands the test of time. So, once again I resolve not to hesitate!
