Quotes

I often think of that rare fulfilling joy, when I am in the presence of some wonderful alignment of events. Where the light, the colour, the shapes and the balance all interlock so beautifully that I feel truly overwhelmed by the wonder of it.” – Charlie Waite

To me, pictures are like blintzes – ya gotta get ‘em while they’re hot.” – Weegee

Creativity with portraits involves the invocation of a state of rapport when only a camera stands between two people…mutual vulnerability and mutual trust.” – Minor White

    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.
