This is probably the Mt. Everest of “moments.” I preach this all the time, but the fact is there is absolutely nothing technically significant about this image. This is an iconic photograph. Now, has anyone EVER asked what the aperture and shutter speed were? The ISO (or actually ASA)? If you ever did, you really missed the point.
This is simply an example of being there. Being at this particular location with a camera. Seeing life. Pressing button. Moment captured. The end. I hope to one day capture a moment that stands the test of time.
Oh, and by the way, here they are today…
It’s been said before and Chase Jarvis wrote a book about it. The best camera is the one with you.
