    Henri Cartier-Bresson 1908-2004

    He died August 2nd. A man who really revolutionized how we take pictures. He had an eye for the decisive moment, he didnt pose or plan shots, he painted pictures. I know how much Bresson has inspired my shots, and im sure many of the other photo nerds on here.
