Cartier-Bresson and God

The sin of Pride - a 'decisive moment'

This image, where Bush broke with protocol for a Presidential Library ceremony and forced his way past Clinton to be the first through the door, brought to mind these quotes:

Matthew ch.023 v.012: "Whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted."

Proverbs ch.011 v.002: "When pride cometh, then cometh shame."

Job ch.040 v.012: "Look on every one that is proud, and bring him low."

And this one:

"To me, photography is the ... recognition, in a fraction of a second, of the significance of an event." Henri Cartier-Bresson
