I recently read Eric Kim’s blog post How To Master “The Decisive Moment” ("How to Master The Decisive Moment"), specifically making note of his comment concerning the moment “when a person points a finger at another.” The comment struck me and I immediately recalled a candid photo someone took of a decisive moment immediately following my son’s wedding. The photo is of my daughter-in-law and I having a conversation in the church foyer. I can’t recall exactly what we were discussing; I suspect it had something to do with logistics, but this photo gave many people a good laugh. It really looks like I’m dishing out some serious advice! I wish I could take credit for this 'decisive-moment' photo (I think it was my sister-in-law's work) but, in sharing it, I hope it makes you smile and look for the decisive moments that might cross your path and your camera's viewfinder.

Always have your camera ready; you never know when that decisive moment is going to jump out at you. Henri Cartier-Bresson was the Master of capturing those moments.
