Picture This! -- Our Next Assignment

Grab Shots
Our next assignment for Picture This! is "Grab Shots," candid images that appear as you walk by and vanish soon after. They are those photos that, for one reason or another, make you raise your camera to your eye for a quick shot. Grab Shots have a long tradition in photography, one that began soon after the miniature 35mm camera came onto the scene. They are spontaneous and highly personal, and often defy analysis even upon retrospection. They are just what they are--grabbed moments in the flow of energy and form that we note with our camera.

These huge portraits along New York's Fifth Avenue always caught my eye for their scale and pose. One day as I went by the light was just right so I grabbed this shot of a street vendor as he stood under the portrait's gaze.
