Photographers On Photography

Here are two of my favourite quotes about photography, superimposed on photos taken at and near my home.


"Photography is about finding something interesting in an ordinary place. I've found it has little to do wiht the things you see and everything to do wiht the way you see them." Elliott Erwitt

"Photography is a love affair with life" Burk Uzzle

Both quotes help explain what I love about indulging my passion for photography. I see things I might not have seen, had I not been looking in the way I do with as a photographer. That can be especially fun in the “everyday,” as happened when I took the first photo from my kitchen window. It can be especially gratifying on days when the light in the woods near my home reminds me how much I love being alive.
