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. True, I do admit that it is easier in the more exotic and colorful parts of the earth. So, when I travel, I completely lose myself in photographing the pale green of a wall, or the copious pink of a bougainvillea.
