Pedro Baptista about his photography project in ‘Obsessions & Fascinations’: “As life progressed, I started to be more and more interested in what images convey. Pictures are like books to me – a way of looking at the world from other peoples eyes, perspectives, and experiences.”
Photography Quotes to Inspire and Delight, a monthly series on the Photography Playground. This months photography quote is by Alfred Eisenstaedt. “It’s more important to click with people than to click the shutter.” Because when the person in front and the person behind the camera are equally connected and at ease, you create the magic together.
Linora Cloter about her photography project ‘Buttoned Time’ in Obsessions & Fascinations: “Every day is different. Sometimes I get inspiration right away from a specific moment and that makes me press the shutter. Right away I’m intrigued and I want to capture this specific moment.”
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.
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.”
Whether I am traveling or living my everyday life in a gray Northern European city, one of the things I try to do is to stay open to the magic of color.

So, when I travel, I completely lose myself in photographing the pale green of a wall, or the copious pink of a bougainvillea.
