Inspiration from Photographers and other clever people

"Our job is to record, each in his own way, this world of light and shadow and time that will never come again exactly as it is today."

Edward Abbey

"The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeing new landscapes but in having new eyes."

Marcel Proust

“To consult the rules of composition before making a picture is a little like consulting the law of gravitation before going for a walk.”

Edward Weston

"You don't make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all of the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved."

Ansel Adams

"The photograph isolates and perpetuates a moment of time: an important and revealing moment, or an unimportant and meaningless one, depending upon the photographer's understanding of his subject and mastery of his process."

Edward Weston

"I really believe there are things nobody would see if I didn't photograph them."

Diane Arbus

"To me, photography is an art of observation. It's about finding something interesting in an ordinary place.... I've found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them."

Elliot Erwitt

"Art is the only field that is allowed to present a world that does not exist elsewhere than in our mind.  This is why we are called artists and not mad people."

Julia Anna Gospodaru

"Generally, the French highly promote culture and the arts, and photography is in their blood."

Herb Ritts
