What I Want

The question posed in a recent fine art photography blog: What do you want from a photograph?

I want to swoon a little....
The Japanese have a term-mono no aware-an intersection of life and death,
the awareness of what it is to be human.
I want to see small moments of poetry.
I want the ineffable, the unexplainable.
And dare I say it?
I want beauty. Not pretty, not even gorgeous but the most sublime definition of beauty-
when light and object are framed in a way that illuminates the interior.
Have I asked for too much?
