Sometimes It Just Happens.

Sometimes--most times, actually!-- you have to go find the image. You need to be proactive. That often means scouting out a location, finding the right angle, the best composition, then going back at a better time for that really good light. Sometimes the image just presents itself. You see it immediately in the viewfinder. Very exciting! When it happens, though, you better be ready. No futzing with the f-stop or fumbling with focus points.

Anyway, this is one of those photos. It just has that certain je ne sais quoi. Hard to define but very satisfying. No unnecessary, extraneous elements. Balance.

The little dude in this shot, that's my buddy Talan.

And, yes, that's right, I said, je ne sais quoi!

Paris baby!
