Photography Quotes

Hey everyone, while there’s still time, head on over to One Stop Poetry and have a look at the One Shoot Photography prompt–a poem/inspirational prompt care of Silviu Ivana, a fabulous Romanian photographer. Sign up ends tonight at midnight, so join in while you still can! Even if you’re not looking to write, check out the interview I did with Silviu, and see the insights he had into the world of photography, as well as a few samples of his work.

Swans, by Silviu Ivana

In honor of this photographic Sunday, and the prompt, this week’s quotes are photography-related:

Sometimes I do get to places just when God’s ready to have somebody click the shutter.  ~Ansel Adams

While there is perhaps a province in which the photograph can tell us nothing more than what we see with our own eyes, there is another in which it proves to us how little our eyes permit us to see.  ~Dorothea Lange

Photography records the gamut of feelings written on the human face, the beauty of the earth and skies that man has inherited, and the wealth and confusion man has created.  It is a major force in explaining man to man.  ~Edward Steichen

And for more samples of Silviu’s work, check out his photography blog:
