Sometimes you have to take a shot, sometimes a shot has to be taken.

On my trip to Long Island a few weeks ago, I tried to get off the main road to find some “off the beaten path” images. I stumbled upon the abandoned house I posted earlier. Oblivious to anything else around me, I spent a few minutes composing and shooting. I thought, “mission accomplished!” then turned to head back to my car and saw the entrance to the nursery.

If I was driving past it, I would not have taken the shot and would have completely missed the near perfect symmetry of this scene. Because I stopped for something else by chance, this shot had to be taken.

That’s philosophy, or something.

  1. Youve broken every rule of composition here. Centered the subject, halved the horizon, ect. You will have to answer to the authorities for this. Me, I love it.
