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.'"
