Photography Quotes

Photography Quotes

"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"

Hello dear visitor,
welcome to my little page of photos. Take a look and if you have any questions, just ask. Feedback in the form of comments, critiques, faves or watches is most welcome! :love:

Please note: I won't thank you for every single fave, although it's very appreciated. What I will do, though, is answer every comment and visit your gallery. It might take some time and you won't necessarily notice me, but I will take a look. Promise.

Thank you for stopping by!

Travel The World Header by serel

"The world is a book and those who do not travel read only a page."

St. Augustine of Hippo

The world offers so many breathtaking locations and places to see and not everyone is able to visit them in person. With this new feature series I invite you on a journey to discover and enjoy the beauty our planet offers. Let's travel the world!


Torres del Paine National Park, Patagonia, Chile, South America

The Torres del Paine National Park is located in the south of Chile, about 115 km from Puerto Natales, between the Andes Mountains and the Patagonia steppes. It covers 242 hectares of a wild and beautiful landscape.

Visiting the Torres del Paine National Park will take you to a place with dramatic mountains, ancient glaciers, lovely lakes and wild rivers.

With approximately 150 000 visitors per year, Torre del Paine National Park is the most visited park in Chile - and yet you can walk for hours and not meet a single (human) soul.

The park reached fifth place in National Geographic's voting for the 100 most beautiful places of the world and was declared a UNESCO biosphere reserve back in 1978.

In the language of the Aonikenk (or Tehuelche) indians "Torres del Paine" means "Towers of the blue sky".

Welcome to another themed feature!

When I was a child I loved baloons and now as an adult I still think they reflect happiness and bring a cheerful mood to wherever they are. I hope you enjoy them, too.

Themed Feature - Raw Emotions
Welcome to another themed feature!
We all know them: happy moments, sad moments; times when we think we can't go further, when we just want to scream to get the pent-up emotions out; and the feeling of comfort once we found someone to confide in and the willingness to start again.

I decided on a new schedule for my features. At the first of each month there will be a "Travel the World" feature, showcasing one location that is worth a visit. At the fifteenth of each month I will publish either a "Themed Feature", with a random topic, or a new issue of my "Fairy Tale Features". Inbetween there might be features for contest winners, but that's nothing regular.
Just watched this great video about posing in photography, a whole two hour workshop with lots of examples for general portraits and wedding shots. All free on youtube.
Merry Christmas to all of you! Christmas Dance 

No Need!

You're Welcome Sign by Mirz123
There's no need to thank me for a fav or llama. You're welcome.

If you like,though, give me a llama back and comment or fave one of my deviations in return.
