Point and Shoot

New York City Subway
  'Let the subject generate its own photographs. Become a camera'.......Minor White

Back in the mid-nineties I walked around NY with a point and shoot camera shooting from the hip. Never looked in the viewfinder - simply saw something that triggered my making an exposure (on film of course) and waited until processing to see the image.

Interesting as it may be I was always able to relate to the images - found it a great exercise to be relieved from the thought process involved in making a traditional exposure - hits you on some sub-conscious level - very much like the iPhone or early Polaroid....
