photography as medicine

Wednesday, May 22, 2013

sadly it looks way better than it tastes / underwater / quince blossoms / seagull soaring / new spruce buds / more pink tulips / teeny wild strawberry blossoms /Miss dixon this morning / flowering crab in our back garden / daffodils on Ernst's grave / a forest of forget-me-nots / seriously ?!? *

A photograph is a secret about a secret. 
The more it tells you the less you know.
Diane Arbus

There is only you and your camera. 
The limitations in your photography are in yourself, 
for what we see is what we are.
Ernst Haas

photography as medicine
at least I know it's my medicine ... 
it's one of them anyway

When you put four edges around some facts, you change those facts.
Garry Winogrand

Photography is a reality so subtle that it becomes more real than reality.
Alfred Stieglitz

*Yo ! what's up Dude ? a combo bossy pants, task master, constant companion, adored friend, much loved cat, show off, top cat, top dog, top top TOP, control freak, handsome as all get out, very, very athletic + always manages to smell just like fresh laundry. He sits on my desk like this much of every day (that's when he's not snoozing brainstorming in his pillow topped office with a view. Doug's convinced that Oliver is in love with me, in fact D may be a tad jealous of our incredible bond ;-) best cat ever !


  1. Gorgeous photos, lovely daffodils on Ernst's resting place, a lovely reminder...I plant trees on my kitty's graves.
    It is so sweet that Oliver loves you, some cats just bond with us and always like to be near us.
    xoxoxo ♡

  2. You might say the donut looks better than it tasted, but it has this Tim Hortons-deprived expat drooling! Can you guess where I'm planning on heading as soon as I land in the TO airport?
