As usual with Jünger. This seems right. Then it sounds wrong. Then you begin to think. What is “to be a great photograph”? Can you take advantage of the moment AND enjoy it at the same time?

Photographs, poets, actors : it’s similar : What’s the part of inspiration? What’s the part of control? How do they listen to their inner critic? What kind of dance, between the thinker and the feeler, inside?
