Capturing the Moment

New Orleans in the 1960s and 1970s provided some great memories for us.
Eudora Welty writes "...Life doesn't hold still. A good snapshot stopped a moment from running away. Photography taught me that to be able to capture transcience, by being ready to click the shutter at the crucial moment, was the greatest need I had. Making pictures of people in all sorts of situations, I learned that every feeling waits upon its gesture; and I had to be prepared to recognize this moment when I saw it."
