As I gradually become better at taking photographs, I'm learning the subtle art of twisting the elements of the clich into something archetypal, the hackneyed into something original. At the same time, I'm honing the skills needed to control the process, manipulating depth of field, light, motion, framing, timing, until using the camera becomes almost instinctual. Sometimes, I start to believe that controlling the process is mastering the art. But then something happens to remind me that, in reality, control is always at the whim and mercy of larger forces. I look through the viewfinder one day and all the yellow taxis appear out of nowhere to line up in a tidy curve, and I shake my head and thank the muses and the gods of chaos and chance. One day the woman in the yellow dress steps into my frame to humble me and remind me that all I can do is accept the gift when it's offered.
