In a search for finding objects in the world that emit a natural emotional energy, the photographer finds himself at times helplessly looking around at a world that seem flat out boring. Catching that moment when the art the world has to offer flashes by can be frustrating. Almost always you are never ready, unless you take the time to really plan what it is you are doing.
I have no problem with the planning part. I do that but it is the fleeting shots that get away that drive me crazy. On a cab ride to see the play Democracy I caught that moment. Rain streaked the window and fog from my body heat was clouding the glass. Trees were whizzing by as I worked my Leica to grab that moment. And yes! With the great post processing tools available and a lot of time the piece is born. I truly love the emotion of the photograph.
