Stop > photographing? Thanks for your comment, Michiel. I was just trying to explain that -to me and concerning photography- the road is at least as important as the destination. Almost the same as what you are saying: (quoting Michiel) In my opinion the photograph itself is not so important for amateurs like us. Of course it is very nice when we make a good photograph but for me the process has become much more important. I think I'm also into your Eastern way of photographing more and more. Now a days it can easily take me an half hour before the shutter clicks, then the developing, printing, washing and toning of the print. In the end, sometimes I don't even show the print to other people because I already had my fun and don't care that much anymore.
