The Meaning of Light

I strangely find it incredibly relaxing to walk the streets on my own, trying not to get caught taking a photograph and spending hours producing only junk. Street photography is my meditation where all the worries and stress of everyday life disappear as I enter the zone of concentration and observation. This peacefulness is interspersed with moments of shear joy and excitement when I think I have nailed a shot. Oddly, such shots are usually not particularly good when reviewed afterwards. It is mostly the photographs that I did not intend, or which contain an unplanned surprise which are the best.
