Abundantia - Daily Deviation

Fri Aug 30, 2013, 8:39 AM
Just yesterday I arrived back from vacation, and at the first day at my desk, I discovered that my picture 'Abundantia' has become today's Daily Deviation for the Street gallery, courtesy of myraincheck, who is one of the true treasures of the site. Thank you so much, Mary!

Abundantia by EricForFriends

I don't want to heap praise on my own work, but let me just say that for me, the picture and the praise that it got represents the experience that can makes Street photography special to the photographer himself or herself. You milk many cows to get the cheese, in the words of HCB, you wear out your best shoes for years, you try to be as clever and adroit as possible, and then, one Sunday afternoon, everything comes together in abundance, in a quick parting shot, when you weren't thinking that much about Street really.

It can happen to any camera, to anyone. Wear good shoes and keep your eyes and your hearts open. :camera::heart:

Congrats Bro. Wise words about photography and street photography in particular. I feel it is just as you say. Every once in a while all the pieces come together and click and that is what makes all the trouble worthwile! That moment rewards the photographer. It is like a blessing from the universe.
