With my new found love for photography my recently married friend Jenny called me up to check out this new exhibit at the Queensland Art Gallery (Southbank). It was for Henri Cartier-Bresson - one of the original masters of street photography and modern photo journalism. The exhibition is running until the 27th November 2011 so check it out before it ends. His work is simply breath taking. It certainly fuels my passion to continue travelling in the near future and capturing those moments in life that we take for granted.
The world is so big and unknown; she's patiently waiting for us to discover her hidden secrets in the most obscure parts of the world. All you need is courage, an open mind, and a camera.
"You just have to live and life will give you pictures." Henri Cartier-Bresson
