One thing that never seems to tire anyone is a beautiful sunset. Whether you have traveled far and wide and seen the most spectacular things or not. Watching the sun go down in all its warm and vibrant colors leaves you with a feeling of peace and wonder. In awe of nature’s beauty. And you want to hold on to it as long as you can.
Photography Quotes to Inspire and Delight, a monthly series on the Photography Playground. I choose the quote for this month because it’s a belief that’s infused in my photographic blood. It’s the basis of everything I share and teach at the Photography Playground. “A camera didn’t make a great picture any more than a typewriter wrote a great novel.” by Peter Adams.
Why would you go through the trouble of creating a travel photo album when you have all the files safely stowed away on your computer? Well, for one thing, computers crash and phones get stolen. When you do not have a watertight backup system and most people don’t, you might lose your precious memories.
But that’s not the most important reason……….
As a photographer, I welcomed the opportunities a smartphone camera gave me. I can still remember the first time vividly. It was more than ten years ago so it was a crappy camera of course. The images were pixelated and blurry. For most of the time, I still photographed with my DSLR. But there was something different about the images I took with my phone.
Every month I share a photography quote and my thoughts and feelings about the quote. A good quote surfaces an idea in a few well-chosen words. I love the fact that some people are that skilled with words. This month’s photography quote is by landscape photographer Destin Sparks “Photography is the story I fail to put into words.”
