    Thanks for posting this, David, I’m sure it will become a chestnut among assigned readings for photography students. (My students read it before Paul’s talk.) What he describes are photography’s greatest challenges and greatest joys- the lack of control and certainty, rewarded by accidents and discovered insights that cannot by gotten to through other media.
