  1. What a striking juxtaposition between the sentiment evoked by the quotes from Weegee and Minor White. Lots of inspiration for getting out with the camera. Really like your flower images.

    • I hadn’t seen how those quotes opposed each other, I just liked them both. But looking at the work of the two photographers, it shouldn’t be a surprise that they come from opposite poles. Thanks for pointing that out.
