"For me, the camera is a sketchbook, an instrument of intuition and spontaneity, the master of the instant which, in visual terms, questions and decides simultaneously"

- Henri Cartier-Bresson

 

i can easily identify with Bresson's words when it comes to how i approach photography - in the moment, uncomplicated, instinctive. like my sketches, which are unplanned, i almost always click my shutter without thinking of what the results might be. all i feel each time i look through my viewfinder is a deep sense of gratitude that i can see these things which i have not been able to see before. "moments", i call them. and now i can also call them "sketches".

 

and here is my "sketch" of a friend in action (Elmer aka Soul101) - one of those precious moments captured when i was in the Philippines last year. and you must really view it large on black.

 

255 days to go before my next trip to the Philippines.
