“Art is never finished, only abandoned.”
~Leonardo da Vinci

Yes, it’s a da Vinci quote, even though most modern folks attribute it to filmmaker George Lucas.

The beauty of photography is that abandonment of the constructed or witnessed moment must, by its very nature, be abandoned. There’s no room for conventional fantasy in photography – the object or scene exists, it is photographed, and it will not be repeated in the exact same way ever again. Models age, landscapes slowly change, perspectives shift. I could try, for one hundred years, to mimic the exact image at the top of this post, and I could get close – but I could never replicate it perfectly.

Photography is the best reminder that time is real, and cannot be stopped (even when captured).
