Those "story moments" are usually fleeting and ephemeral. Everything in view falls suddenly, almost unexpectedly into place almost as if scripted. And then ... right on cue ... your subject gives a look that completes the entire story. The moment passes instantly and no one but you knows it even happened. You saw it coming and pulled your camera up to your eye and placed your waiting finger over the shutter and then ... click ... there it is.
Well, that's how I dream it happens anyway. Someday maybe. And I know it will be awesome!
Till then I'll keep capturing half-lidded eyes in mid-blink ... yawns ... occluded faces ... and all sorts of other nonsense hoping for that "moment".
Enjoy the moments when they come ... and be ready!!
