to want to read the line of a poem twice

“When people look at my pictures I want them to feel the way they do when they want to read a line of a poem twice.” 

~Robert Frank

“Your first 10 000 photographs are your worst.” 

Henri Cartier-Bresson

 “To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."       

Henri Cartier-Bresson

“A photograph is a secret about a secret. The more it tells you, the less you know.”

~ Diane Arbus


  1. Exquisite works of art in their own right. A delight of color and form. I like Robert Frank's quote the best, I think. It says it all.
    Have a wonderful day!

  2. Thanks, Dawn - I love the Frank quotation too!
