“Decisive” color

Yesterday I found Anne-Marie sitting on a bench outside a restaurant in Key Largo, awash in a lovely palette of blues and salmon pinks and it hit me that Cartier-Bresson probably would have included color in his descriptions of “decisive moments” if he hadn’t been working when color film was still in its infancy and much harder to use than black-and-white–slower (harder to ‘freeze’ movement), often requiring artificial light.
