Just saw the Henri Cartier Bresson theme and this was the first picture of mine that came to mind. Adding a photograph to anywhere near his name feels a little ridiculous such is his genius and influence on the craft. I have learned lots from his photographs in terms of composition, geometry and of course the decisive moment.

I came across this scene and whist watching these boys messing about in and around this weir, I waited for just that... the decisive moment. Boy coming down, ball going up.
