‘As for the process, ideally I would like to spend my time walking around as a free soul being completely open to what comes my way. However, the truth of the matter is that much of the time I set out to specifically photograph; that is, I go to a place…which for one reason or another is promising. Once there, I try to forget that I came for the purpose of photographing and leave myself open to respond first and then photograph as a result of that response. I have found that, almost inevitably, the more I succeed in doing this the better I use the camera.’
— — Charles Pratt (1926-1976), from Statement About Photography
Wearing his homburger in such a way, even Edward VII would be proud.
The first snow has fallen! After the previous two days of autumn storms the snow and cold has finally arrived! Great mood on the town today. Shot a couple of portraits of strangers (which for me is pretty new). They’ll be up shortly!
