      Blame/Credit social media but I like dropping quotes on any recent photo adventure. I think this quote is my fav though. What is your fav photography quote? (BTW, this is Turtlehead Peak at Red Rock here in Vegas...)

      My girl Susan Sontag. 100%

      "Photographs really are experience captured, and the camera is the ideal arm of consciousness in its acquisitive mood. To photograph is to appropriate the thing photographed. It means putting oneself into a certain relation to the world that feels like knowledge — and, therefore, like power."

      "While a painting or a prose description can never be other than a narrowly selective interpretation, a photograph can be treated as a narrowly selective transparency"

      "All photographs are memento mori. To take a photograph is to participate in another person's mortality, vulnerability, mutability. precisely by slicing out this moment and freezing it, all photographs testify to time's relentless melt."

      Highly recommend her essay "On Photography" if you've never read it!

      I disagree. Thats ok. All our different opinions.
      It is different things to different people.
      My creative stuff is my view on my surroundings or inner vision. Sometimes it is the battle with not loving life that drives some of the images.
      Quotes on images serve a purpose perhaps of the presenters intention on the image. Like an artsy meme.
