Should also point out, that when you take a shot that lots of others have taken, doesn't mean that you can't get a better one, as the lighting will be different on the day you took your shot. Otherwise, we might as well sell all out equipment and sit infront of the telly.
Yeah, no two shots are the same. I mean do we not photograph twins because Diane Arbus did? What about water coolers etc? Bern and hilla becher spent a life time documenting them. Oh and we better not photograph Paris at night time because Brassai would be annoyed! :-)
