    Photo: a nice homage to Henri Cartier-Bresson, who changed photojournalism and photography forever – in the best possible way.

      Hey Anders, I have endeavored to research Henri Cartier-Bresson after reading your kind words about his photographic talents. I feel he and I have a common thread, which, along with your positive input, inspires me to dabble with  a bit more focus in this timeless art. Kudos to you for taking the time to drop a line to the blog. Much appreciated!Dave L
