The one (or actually two) sentence(s) I liked today came from Bill Beebe. He wrote, on Matthew’s ‘thew’s reviews:
“Using this lens strips away all vanity and pretense. It makes photographs, not a statement.”
This is so right. I often have the impression that since we’ve got digital, we “pixel-peep”, instead of seeing the photograph. And sometimes, I’m guilty of that as well.
The article I liked most today so far was/is from Scott Bourne, on his ‘Photofocus’ site. I especially liked his Nr. 2 of the ‘Five Things I Love About Photography’ article.
But it goes on. His Nr. 3 lists something he calls “memory protection”; something Kirk Tuck called:
I commented on that article before. And yes, to get back to Scott, maybe that is one of the strongest reasons of taking/making a photograph you could possibly think of:
“And the pictures you make today can be touchstones for the memories you will crave and enjoy later.”
Thanks for reading.
