Sometimes I can't stop talking. Sometimes I can't stop watching. I can never stop watching. I can never be caught without a camera in my hand. If I miss a shot, it's because I was looking too hard & enjoying the experience. If I get a shot, it's because everything in the universe came together with exactly enough force, at exactly the right time to get the exposure, get the focus, to get the moment & be a part of the moment & there was nothing I could do to stop it.…
