I've had this recent epiphany that 99% of good photography has to do with the equipment. If you have a kick-ass digital camera with an incredible telephoto lens, and spend at least $5000 on it, you would have trouble taking bad photos. Or at the very least you could take 500 photos and be able to find 50 that were truly excellent.
However, this guy proves that there is something to finding the right compositions. From his taxi, he takes some of the best shots of this city I have seen.
