“Bend the rules and play tricks with the mind; make documents of moments that have never existed.” – Peter Funch

When these moments occur I find they are full of humour. I really enjoy finding them.

“There is a crack in everything – that’s how the light gets in” Leonard Cohen, Frederic Lezmi.

Two quite different views, one of a broken ladder taken in an old light house in Cape Breton, and the other a scene at a christening in Hove, UK.

The mind’s eye pt.2

“There are those who take photographs arranged beforehand and those who go out to discover the image and seize it. For me the camera is a sketch book, an instrument of intuition and spontaneity, the master of the instant which, in visual terms, questions and decides simultaneously.”

Henri Cartier-Bresson 1999 The mind’s eye. Writings on photography and photographers. Aperture

The mind’s eye

“To take photographs means to recognize-simultaneously and within a fraction of a second-both the fact itself and the rigorous organization of visually perceived forms that give it meaning. It is putting one’s head, one’s eye and one’s heart on the same axis.”

Henri Cartier-Bresson 1999 The mind’s eye. Writings on Photography and Photographers. Aperture
