I heard a talk by a National Geographic photographer, a famous guy, who was discussing how he makes his photos come alive. He was referring to the fact that when he found a photogenic scene, it usually wasn’t enough.

He needed life–he needed “magic,” usually involving the addition of a person or people. So he would wait, sometimes for quite awhile until something happened, and then he would trip the shutter.

Today I was photographing the “White House” owned by Charlotte and Tom Pritchard at 93 Main, where Charlotte had created a fun Halloween display.  I was looking for magic and I found some in the form of inquisitive squirrels as well as tweeting birds   (real tweets—not the digital kind).

So I made a couple of video clips to catch the sounds, but suddenly I was aware that a couple was approaching, walking towards my location from the east. Magic perhaps?

I was standing in the street, next to the curb, so they didn’t see me at first.  As they came by, I fired my iPhone a few times. But the best was when the young woman turned my way, saw me with my camera, and reacted instantly. The photo above was the only frame that captured this “decisive moment.”

I told her that she would be on Blogfinger, and she was happy to hear that. As for me, magic and a pretty girl—that’s the best!
