The spirit of Stone Town

Waiting for the right moment is the essence of Henri Cartier Bresson’s iconic “decisive moment” photography that made him legendary.   It’s brilliant for Street Photography and really paid off while I was sitting inside Zanzibar Coffee House with a cup of the best to escape the Stone Town heat.

  1. Thanks Jude 🙂 So many people passed by, going about their day, but timing really was key. I missed a man with a cart overloaded with oranges just by taking my eye off the ball to sip my coffee. A man in a fez with a large pot belly and several large bags filled the frame so much he hid the interesting rear door, but these two ladies were the perfect split-second timing 🙂
