Photography Quotes

:santa: Photography Quotes :santa:

"Life is like a camera... Just focus on what's important, capture the good times, develop from the negatives, and if things don't turn out – take another shot"

"One of the biggest mistakes a photographer can make is to look at the real world and cling to the vain hope that next time his film will somehow bear a closer resemblance to it...If we limit our vision to the real world, we will forever be fighting on the minus side of things, working only too make our photographs equal to what we see out there, but no better."
Galen Rowell

"Art is the only way to run away without leaving home."
Twyla Tharp

"Amateurs worry about equipment, professionals worry about money, masters worry about light, I just take pictures..."
Vernon Trent

"Photography, as we all know, is not real at all. It is an illusion of reality with which we create our own private world."
Arnold Newman

"Take nothing but pictures. Kill nothing but time. Leave nothing but footprints."
John Kay - "Nothing But"

Fairy Tale Feature #3

Mon Dec 1, 2014, 11:33 AM
"If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales."
Albert Einstein


Snow White fairy tale timeless by RosyChiovaro77

Once upon a time in midwinter, when the snowflakes were falling like feathers from heaven, a queen sat sewing at her window, which had a frame of black ebony wood. As she sewed she looked up at the snow and pricked her finger with her needle. Three drops of blood fell into the snow. The red on the white looked so beautiful that she thought to herself, "If only I had a child as white as snow, as red as blood, and as black as the wood in this frame."

A year later the king took himself another wife. She was a beautiful woman, but she was proud and arrogant, and she could not stand it if anyone might surpass her in beauty.

Once Upon A Time - Evil Queen at the Mirror by becsketch

She had a magic mirror. Every morning she stood before it, looked at herself, and said: 
Mirror, mirror, on the wall,
Who in this land is fairest of all?
You, my queen, are fair; it is true.
But Snow-White is a thousand times fairer than you.

From that hour on whenever she looked at Snow-White her heart turned over inside her body, so great was her hatred for the girl. The envy and pride grew ever greater, like a weed in her heart, until she had no peace day and night. Then she summoned a huntsman and said to him, "Take Snow-White out into the woods. I never want to see her again. Kill her, and as proof that she is dead bring her lungs and her liver back to me."

She ran over sharp stones and through thorns, and wild animals jumped at her, but they did her no harm. She ran as far as her feet could carry her, and just as evening was about to fall she saw a little house and went inside in order to rest.

After dark the masters of the house returned home. They were the seven dwarfs who picked and dug for ore in the mountains. They lit their seven candles, and as soon as it was light in their house they saw that someone had been there,

The dwarfs said, "If you will keep house for us, and cook, make beds, wash, sew, and knit, and keep everything clean and orderly, then you can stay with us, and you shall have everything that you want."

Then she thought, and thought again, how she could kill Snow-White, for as long as long as she was not the most beautiful woman in the entire land her envy would give her no rest.

When the dwarfs came home that evening they found Snow-White lying on the ground. She was not breathing at all. She was dead.

Snow-White lay there in the coffin a long, long time, and she did not decay, but looked like she was asleep, for she was still as white as snow and as red as blood, and as black-haired as ebony wood.

As he thus spoke, the good dwarfs felt pity for him and gave him the coffin. The prince had his servants carry it away on their shoulders. But then it happened that one of them stumbled on some brush, and this dislodged from Snow-White's throat the piece of poisoned apple that she had bitten off. Not long afterward she opened her eyes, lifted the lid from her coffin, sat up, and was alive again.

Themed Feature - Dancing

Fri Oct 31, 2014, 1:35 PM by serel:iconserel:

Welcome to another themed feature!

Dancing is a much loved hobby of mine and even though I don't go that often at the moment I'm 100% sure that dancing is something that will stay with me my entire life, bringing me joy and happiness. There are so many different aspects of it that you always have something new to learn or something to improve. It never gets boring and you'll never be to old for it.

As you might have noticed this themed feature is a bit different than previous ones. This is because it is my entry for :iconwindklang: Windklang 's Feature Contest. Visit the contest journal Feature Contest [Less than one week left!!] for all details and a link to the other entries.

I think the skin and the theme "Dancing" fit quite well as both are structured and yet colourful and multi-variant for a personal look. 

  If you like this feature, please consider faving it, so others might see it too.
