Q: My sister in-law recently gave me a Canon EOS 10D digital camera body. Having only used point and shoot cameras, what would be a good beginners lens to get for this camera? Should I get kit lens to start with?

A: Do you know?

The sense I get after studying Henri Cartier-Bresson's work is a sense of aloneness, whether the subject is alone or not. There is movement, but no sense of urgency, no need to hurry, an escape from time. And beautiful simplicity.

  • Jody Frost

    Jody Frost said (5 May 2010):

    I keep coming back to this image over and over.... I'ts positively haunting! From the sepia to the long shadow, from the palm trees to the hat, it all work together. The viewer (me) can create a whole history of this man, a whole past or future that he's walking from or toward... I love it! It's visual poetry! It's entirely Bresson!

    I'm not sure if the man in the scene walks away or is walking towards me. I prefer imagine that he is walking into the light leaving the darkness behind him wearing the little luggage that needs.
