Sardinia, this summer
“What i like about photographs is that they capture a moment that’s gone forever, impossible to reproduce.”
I’m sitting in a Barnes & Noble. One with a lot of natural lighting and I chose a seat that is being flooded by sunlight. It’s really plush. Might even be sunken in leathery type of plush. And I’m waiting for him. I’m listening to the kids in the children section; they can be heard chasing each other around, I can hear the cappuccino machine whirring and hissing behind the counter.
Then he walks up to me….
I did a wedding today at the District Court in D.C. Everyone was beautiful. Even this fella. He passed us in the main lobby and the only thing I could think of was “my Jesus, there goes, and still is, Cross Thompson”.
I didn’t say hello though.
Even though I shot him before - he’d have no idea who or what I was.
I needed this.
This is what I want to photograph.
This right here.
when shit ain’t so shaky
I wanna be the one being captured.
