On The Street

Imitations of Cartier-Bresson

Story by Jim Tardio June 6th, 2015

Capturing the moment

Every photographer who has ever roamed the streets with a camera has grand visions of becoming the next Henri Cartier-Bresson. Here are my attempts at snapping the “Decisive Moment”. I’ve tried to capture the humor, juxtaposition, absurd, and the quick slice of everyday life. They are poor imitations of the great master, but loads of fun nevertheless.

In step.
Nice catch.
Off to work.
Checking out the melons...(haha).
On the go.
