"But there is another kind of seeing that involves a letting go.
When I see this way I sway transfixed and emptied.
The difference between the two ways of seeing is the difference
between walking with and without a camera.
When I walk with a camera I walk from shot to shot,
reading the light on a calibrated meter.
When I walk without a camera, my own shutter opens,
and the moment’s light prints on my own silver gut.
When I see this second way I am above all an unscrupulous observer."
