The Game of Position

February 4, 2013

Part of the meditation of this sport, and it certainly can be a sport, is having a hyper- awareness of space and action. One almost blurs it all to weigh and measure, anticipate-- as though working an opponent to the hoop on a court-- to be in the right place at the right time. I don't know if the example above is such an example of timeliness, but position begets surprise and can make the difference.

It is one of my favorite aspects of photo athletics-- seeing everything at once, zeroing in on potentials, knowing there's a place and a moment to be there, and just maybe, a success. it sounds like a sport, doesn't it?

The master? Henri Cartier-Bresson.
