“The way to think is the way we see, and will make better photographs when we spend as much time honing our minds and our hearts as we do memorizing the buttons on the camera.” David des Chemin, professional Canadian photographer.
I saw it when I was returning from El Dorado Mall one suffocating afternoon. The building was being torn apart after it had been abandoned for over four years when the El Triángulo financial group went belly up.
I was lucky that there is a traffic light right in front of the building. Fortunately the light was red, so I had a few minutes to look closely at the construction site. Immediately a picture of a choppy sea popped into my mind. I said to my self secretly, “I have to return to the sea.” Three days later I went back. The photograph was already in my head; all I had to do was press the shutter and the picture would migrate from my head to the camera.
This is what I saw. I used my DSLR Canon EOS Rebel T2i in automatic Program mode and also activated the Monochrome feature for a black and white image. I’m still wet behind my ears with the new device.
