Yeah, but he only got one of them. The second is hiding on the left arranging a liason. Lucky match of the dress.

Decisive moment indeed.

Yes, a lucky moment. One of the quite rare times when walking the streets in search of a moment yields something. My understanding is that the Cartier Bresson method is to find an interesting scene, set it up camerawise, then wait for the right folks to populate it. And that might be a long wait. In a way, itís the photographer not as observer but as stage director. Iíve always found it hard to summon the patience to loiter with intent and/or the spontaneity of the moment can be lost. So many ways to approach this!

This is why I'd make a crap HCB-style "street" photographer. I'm always on the lookout for the interesting thing presenting itself or happening now. If it's not there when I look, or if I can't see it getting there real soon, I move on.
