Moments: Everyone has them
The quote from a card, now lost but forever in my memory. The banality of the message, the generic schlock – it reminds me of an ad in a writer’s magazine for someone’s book: “Everybody has a story to tell: This is mine.”
“Moments” are what photography is all about, mostly. This place, this thing, at this moment. But that, too, generalizes. Because it’s not. Some are, some aren’t. Is this my moment, or the bird’s? Is it a moment in objective space? Does a tree …. ahhh, forget it.
