From "Smoke", an American independent film (1995) directed by Wayne Wang and Paul Auster. In the movie, Harvey Keitel plays Auggie, the owner of a small cigar store in Brooklyn, New York, and also an amateur photographer with a personal project: for the past 14 years he has taken one photo a day from the street corner outside his store. Everyday. One day Auggie talks to his friend, Paul, about his hobby showing all his works, thousands and thousands of pictures taken in the same place. Paul scanning the pages and doesn't understand because all them look alike. But Auggie says "You'll never get it if you don't slow down" and explains "People say you have to travel to see the world but, sometimes, I think that if you just stay in one place and keep your eyes open, you're going to see just about all that you can handle." It's all a matter of slowing down, being in present time and observing what is in front of you, in the everyday life
