A post over at Boing Boing pointed me toward this very Utata post on the joy of shooting in natural history museums.  Full of really great stuff – who *hasn’t* thought of what it would be like if it were humans all preserved in the jars by a smarter species? And then came upon this:

I try to look as much as I can, and when I have looked until I have seen, I take out my camera.

That, in a nutshell, is my ideal approach to photography.  I can list the regrets of all the times I’ve not been able to follow this.  And I have no regrets from the times that I have.
