When I need an inspiration I browse through Bresson´s photos.

His photos inspire me in the way that I want to go out on the streets and shoot. There is a whole world out there, full of people and moments but capturing the “the decisive moment” or the perfect photo is harder than you can imagine. Sometimes I come home after a photo session with not a single shot that moves me like it should.

And that brings me to the question I ask myself so often and try to answer every time. What is it that makes a photo a good one, that evokes emotions, makes you fall in love with it? It´s hard to say in few words, but that´s what drives me out to take photos, to try and capture that “the decisive moment”, a photo that I will fall in love with.

    Nice homage to Bresson. I really love the elder man's expression...it's as if the Mickey Mouse freaked him out!
