Interesting discussion about Painting vs Photos, pragmatism in photography, and general life lessons.

There are links in the video description for a documentary, I'll have to watch them, I wasn't familiar with Saul Leiter, but love the photos.
There is a difference between a shaky or out-of-focus photograph and a snapshot of clouds and fog banks. - Schrödinger

Thank you, Paul, for that interesting link - lots of background information which I wasn't aware of.

A couple of years ago I saw a retrospective of Leiter's work at the Deichtorhallen in Hamburg - I think that was shortly after the (re-) discovery of his work. I even bought the catalogue, impressive images and really unique perspectives.
