HOW TO DETECT A GOOD ENOUGH PHOTOGRAPH?
DO YOU TAKE THE HINTS?

"A key capacity is indeed being open for crossovers from one field of expertise to another. It is rewarding in more than one sense because crossovers do not have to limit themselves to narrow jumps from one area to another. They are universally applicable.

Strange talk in a field of a low interest like street photography where most practitioners have a liking for what is inside their cameras more than for what is inside their heads. Seeing though a mind's eye in not seeing though an attachment to the camera like a sun shield or a filter. Most know that.

I am reading a book by, Gerd Gigerenzer. I picked it up from my favourite North European book store at Friedrichstrasse i Berlin a few weeks ago. Yes, Dussmann.

The title is Risk Savvy. How to make good decisions. Yes, I already have his Gut Feeling, if you wanted to ask that question.

Both books are highly potent if you are interested in photography and visual communication at large. But you have to make the crossover yourself."
