Quotes (I) Henry Cartier-Bresson

Fellow blogger Cosme, from bCLPhotography, an awesome photographer from Barcelona, with a beautiful photography blog, nominated me for a challenge to post my three favorite quotes, one each for three consecutive days. With each post I must nominate three bloggers for the challenge. I have accepted this fun challenge and will start with a quote from the guru of all street photographers.

“The creative act lasts but a brief moment, a lightning instant of give-and-take, just long enough for you to level the camera and to trap the fleeting prey in your little box.” ~ Henri Cartier-Bresson

I’d like to nominate the following bloggers for this challenge:

Tina Schell, from Travels and Trifles, who delights us with beautiful photography and wonderful quotes on every one of her posts.

Cee Neuner, from Cee’s Photography Blog, a masterful photographer and a lover of challenges. She hosts some four of five fun weekly challenges on her blog.

Susan Judd, from Words Visual, who is both a photographer and a poet. I figure she might enjoy the quotes challenge!
