"Camera Head", Self-Portrait in the bathroom mirror, Canon 40D
"We photographers deal in things which are continually vanishing, and when they have vanished there is no contrivance on earth can make them come back again. We cannot develop and print a memory."
I think one of the reasons that I love photography so much is that it is perhaps the only way to punch time in the kisser and stun him enough to stop in his tracks. Even if it's just for 1/1000 of a second. And while I consider Monsieur Bresson one of my all time artistic heroes, I have to disagree with him here. You absolutely can develop and print a memory. That is what drives me to click the shutter again and again and again.
