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"

  Themed Feature - DancingWelcome 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.

The Artworks

La Nobleza del Flamenco by ryoung
Themed Feature - Vertical ScapesWelcome to another themed feature!
When I think of landscape photos, most times I think of a horizontal format, and I'm sure I'm not the only one. Ever heard the term "landscape format"?
However, every now and then it's good to do things differently. I hope you enjoy this little collection of vertical land- and waterscapes photos.

Fairy Tale Feature #3"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

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
