Temporary Blindness

I love that because of the way cameras work, I can't see the moment I just captured when looking through the viewfinder.  

Of course for things like landscapes and still life this isn't as interesting a point, but for action photography, street photography...even just candid shots among friends I have to rely on everything else lining up just perfectly to get the shot I'm temporarily blinded from. 

This isn't exactly profound or anything. I just love the dynamic between the camera capturing this incredibly brief moment in time, and me being temporarily blinded from it. 

It's fun.  

It's one of my favorite parts of taking photos.
