“To me, photography is the simultaneous recognition, in a fraction of a second, of the significance of an event as well as of a precise organization of forms which give that event its proper expression.” –Henri Cartier-Bresson in his book, The Decisive Moment.

He may call it the decisive moment, but in this picture I think I just got lucky, especially, since I shot it surreptitiously with my i-phone. Of course, I love the cowboy and the light on the front rim of his hat, but I also love the guy in the background who looks like he is talking on a portable phone from the 1980’s.

This was shot in Wichita, KA.
