"The Decisive Moment"- Henri Cartier-Bresson ( Photographer)

Just thought I would add this little snippet about one of the amazing photographers that I once studied back in the good old days. A friend of mines Blog is titled "The Decisive Moment". It just inspired to add a little entry about him and a few of his pics which can be seen here @ Magnum Photos
This is his definitive Quote:

"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... . In photography, the smallest thing can be a great subject. The little human detail can become a leitmotif." — Henri Cartier-Bresson

 His first Camera, was nothing like as convenient as the currrent cameras we are all lucky enough to be using. He did it all in a manual capacity and  with such accuracy.

"Cartier-Bresson exclusively used Leica 35 mm rangefinder cameras equipped with normal 50 mm lenses or occasionally a wide-angle for landscapes. He often wrapped black tape around the camera's chrome body to make it less conspicuous. With fast black and white films and sharp lenses, he was able to photograph almost by stealth to capture the events".

 Anyways you can read his Biography if you like!

Random images lying around on Random Memory Cards

So I was checking through a stack of my Compact Flash Memory Cards and came across a bunch of recent and ancient images... just thought I would post some of the nice finds! Looks like some were back in the fall and some are from our recent Vancouver Aquarium visit for Ellie's birthday! Probably going to find some more but this will do for now!

Canada Wins record Gold Medals!

So... Incase anyone in the world doesn't know, Canada Re-Claimed there Gold medal in the Men's & Women's Ice Hockey. Along with a whole horde of Gold medals and numerous Silvers and Bronzes too! I was able to sneak out of work to shoot a little of the Bedlam out on South Fraser Way in Abbotsford. People drove up and down honking horns, flying Flags on hockey sticks and  whatever else they had in support of there fellow Canadians who fought a great battle with the Americans to bring home the last gold of the games. I also ran into the Abbotsford Heat Mascot, Mr Hawkey. He was high-5'ing the crowd and celebrating like every great canadian mascot would!
