Potent Quotable, 8-20-2011

Nobody sees a flower — really — it is so small it takes time — we haven’t time — and to see takes time, like to have a friend takes time.

– Georgia O’Keeffe

 

There is no such thing as inaccuracy in a photograph. All photographs are accurate. None of them is the truth.

– Richard Avedon

 

If you want to photograph a man spinning, give some thought to why he spins. Understanding for a photographer is as important as the equipment he uses.

– Margaret Bourke-White

 

A few years ago I would not have understood these quotes on the same level I do now.  Now I appreciate and marvel at the unique vision of each person who looks through the lens.    The choice of a focal point, the composition, and the angle convey a different story.  

While up north we often  passed our camera to our niece, Krystyn.  She has a way of looking and seeing.  Many of her  photos capture  sweet moments of solitude within a larger environment.   I love them:
