The Decisive Moment: The End of Rain
“Of all the means of expression, photography is the only one that fixes a precise moment in time.” – Henri Cartier-Bresson
Bresson talks of a decisive moment, of the almost instantaneous recognition of a split second occurrence that perfectly aligns with the photographer's vision.
I waited for the rain to finish at Rockefeller Center. While waiting, I knew of a window off to the side of the observatory that allows you to view the outdoor observation deck. I was surprised to see this older woman and child viewing the City during the rainstorm. She momentarily reached out to touch the rain and I snapped this photo.
