The Photographer And Concentration

I wrote once before that I think photography has a lot in common with archery. Line up the shot and then let it loose. Once committed, whether it connects with the target is something you the photographer can watch unfold but cannot influence.

Of course it takes just a split second from taking the photo to sensing whether it was the photo one wanted to take. But that split second can widen and last a good long breath.

      I had just been photographing the building they were photographing, but I had to distinguish myself from the tourist hordes by photographing something more ‘suitable to a photographer’. 🙂
