Quote for the day:

 It is part of the photographer’s job to see more intensely than most people do. He must have and keep in him something of the receptiveness of the child who looks at the world for the first time or of the traveler who enters a strange country. Most photographers would feel a certain embarrassment in admitting publicly that they carried within them a sense of wonder, yet without it they would not produce the work they do, whatever their particular field. It is the gift of seeing the life around them clearly and vividly, as something that is exciting in its own right. It is an innate gift, varying in intensity with the individual’s temperament and environment. -Bill Brandt, “Camera in London”, The Focal Press, London 1948, p. 14

Happy Mother’s Day to all of the moms out there, especially the ones that have supported and encouraged us photographers.

  1. Thanks for the Mothers Day “shout out”… while it takes alot of effort to find, compose and make a fabulous photograph; it also takes alot of effort to support the one you love in his photography. You have an outstanding eye for the art of common items and places. I enjoy following your posts and seeing what you find in places I have been but couldn’t have seen the way you did.

  2. wow! this is superb. love it!

  5. This is really cool. This photo has a really bold presence.
