Wellness Activity: Looking at Photographs

In anticipation of my digital photography class each week, I look at photographs taken my some of my favorite photographers. The preceding photographs were taken by Ansel Adams. Here are some of his quotes as well.

"You don't take a photograph, you make it."

"All I can do in my writing is to stimulate a certain amount of thought, clarify some technical facts and date my work. But when I preach sharpness, brilliancy, scale, etc., I am just mouthing words, because no words can really describe those terms and qualities it takes the actual print to say, 'here it is.'"

I've been lurking your blog for awhile, but wanted to come out of the shadows for this one as a former photography major. :) Good luck with your DP class and here's hoping it becomes one of the many tools you can have at your disposal for therapy.

Dear pandalopes:
Welcome to my blog, and glad you've stopped lurking:-)! The photography class is great although it's a real learning curve for me. But, I believe it enables me to switch from a left-brain to a right-brain orientation, which is very relaxing.

Wow! I love photography and is so excited to your work soon... ;)


Susan I plan of publising a book featuring my haiku and I need some inputs from you... ;)

Dear Mariposa,
My photography work needs "work." But we can talk about your haiku offline.
