Words

"The enemy of photography is convention, the fixed rules of 'how to do', the salvation of photography comes from experiment."
-Ken Merfeld

I sometimes go through my old notebooks and reread the little quotes and side notes I had made to myself.  I found these ones and wrote them down again in my current book so I can reflect on them more often.

"A thing is not seen because it is visible, but conversely, visible because it is seen."
-Plato
(this was underlined by Diane Arbus in her copy of the works by Plato)
