Photography is certainly a good tool, for processing and otherwise. It surely helps if you notice as if tomorrow you won’t be able to notice any more. For the day will come.
Today’s musing is brought to you by three quotations on photography which I’ve come across recently:
We are making photographs to understand what our lives mean to us.
~Ralph Hattersley (reblogged from myguiltypleasures)
All the technique in the world doesn’t compensate for the inability to notice.
One should really use the camera as though tomorrow you’d be stricken blind.
~Dorothea Lange (the last two quotations reblogged from Jane Lurie Photography)
Usually I post happy pictures – universally “pretty”, be it picture-postcard cliché or quirky. But sometimes what I see is not all that nice, and I try to understand and fail. Still at other times it makes me love these people even more.
Rome’s Monteverde is a good testing ground with real people, dogs, cats, seagulls, parrots and plants. Today I’ll focus on the first and last and show you what all is growing around here and how people help.
