PH622: Decisive Moment

The decisive moment is a moment where the moon and the stars align and everything comes together to give you that perfect shot. One photographer that best made use of the decisive moment was Henri Cartier Bresson. He created a book of over 400 images of decisive shots. According to him "There is nothing in this world that does not have a decisive moment". My decisive moment was on November 16 at the Bank of America on Sacramento and Davis in the Financial District. While a sit in was going on inside the bank and a stand off was taking place outside a little girl was holding a sign up in favor of the protestors.
