I just read, Read This If You Want to Take Great Photographs of Places by Henry Carroll. There are two quotes from it I want to share:
Photography allows us to comprehend our encounters with the sublime. It satisfies our irresistible urge to contain or make sense of something greater than ourselves. (94)
Showing the world through your eyes. That’s what it’s all about. Some people might not like what you see or how you see it. It really doesn’t matter, as long as you find the places that mean something to you and communicate that connection through your photographs. (119)
This could apply to many areas of life. The book is full of quick tips for beginners or experts.
