Le moment decisif. The “decisive moment at which the elements in motion come together and are in complete balance, thus reflecting the every day and revealing something of the nature of life.”

This hilarious photograph has been sitting in media files for over a year. I don’t know why, on earth, Henri Cartier Bresson took it. I suppose these gals are trying to hail a cab which, admittedly, reflects something about the every day nature of life (in a big city).

UPDATE:  More hilarity. Russell Duffy (see below) asks, “Hence the expression mad as hatters?”
