As I browse thru my galleries of images, I try to reflect on quotes from famous artists, many of who are and have been an inspiration (but not all of whom are photographers).

Which of my photographs is my favorite? The one I’m going to take tomorrow. Imogen Cunningham

Don’t shoot what it looks like. Shoot what it feels like. David Alan Harvey

Your first 10,000 photographs are your worst. Henri Cartier-Bresson

Whether you succeed or not is irrelevant, there is no such thing. Making your unknown known is the important thing. Georgia O'Keeffe

You’ve got to push yourself harder. You’ve got to start looking for pictures nobody else could take. You’ve got to take the tools you have and probe deeper. William Albert Allard

Beauty can be seen in all things, seeing and composing the beauty is what separates the snapshot from the photograph. Matt Hardy

Art is not what you see, but what you make others see. Edgar Degas

You don't make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved. Ansel Adams

Don't be repressed in your work, dare to experiment, consider any urge, if in a new direction all the better. Edward Weston

As a matter of fact, nearly all the greatest work is being, and has always been done, by those who are following photography for the love of it, and not merely for financial reasons. As the name implies, an amateur is one who works for love. Alfred Stieglitz

Don't try to be original. Be simple. Be good technically, and if there is something in you, it will come out. Henri Matisse

looks fabulous. Very well done, whomever put it together. The only complaint is the backround music, me being a drummer, I am partial to New Orleans Dixieland. (LOL) When I see you at the club, I will ask you some questions regarding the site.
