This quote from Henri Cartier-Bresson has always puzzled me. But I think I got it figured out:
Even the smallest little detail can be beautiful, a theme (leitmotif) into itself.
In other words:
The smallest most tiny, most mundane, most ordinary details can be insanely beautiful in photography!
In praise of shooting macro photos, and just looking for small details:
RICOH GR III joy in macro
I am amazed; the Ricoh GR III in macro mode is insanely good at catching all these tiny details. Even these phenomenal details in a piece of cooked bacon!
The upside of monochrome:
You can better see the details; you get less distracted by the colors.
