Caught in a Moment

Henri Cartier-Bresson once told The Washington Post, "There is a creative fraction of a second when you are taking a picture. Your eye must see a composition or an expression that life itself offers you, and you must know with intuition when to click the camera. That is the moment the photographer is creative....Once you miss it, it is gone forever."
Since I've retired I find myself traveling with a camera so that I can create a record of sorts of where I've been. When I see something I think is interesting enough to photograph I'm never concerned with whether or not I'm photographing the decisive moment. I just click away and hope for something worth looking at.
