One of the things synonymous with Henri Cartier-Bresson, aside from being a photographic genius, is his concept of the “decisive moment”. Do you have shots following the same credo? Let’s see it!
While we Lomographers like to shoot from the hip guns blazing, occasionally there are times that call for more patience and a little more finesse. This entails waiting for the ‘eureka’ or decisive moment while taking photographs. Could it be adding a human element juxtaposing geometric lines? Or something much more complex or even much more basic? Show us your best decisive moment photos!

The man behind the vivid shots, Hodaka Yamamoto, talks to us about the habits of a good experimental photographer.
When a photographer encounters a pair, an instinct rushes in, "Is this a special, intimate moment I just stumbled on?" Or else, those accidents of two objects, two birds, two swaying plants camping together especially for your photo. This might not be the case, but it's still a pleasant thing for patterns and quirks to find their way into an everyday shot.
