Do stuff.  Be clenched, curious.  Not waiting for inspiration's shove or society's kiss on your forehead.  Pay attention.  It's all about paying attention.  Attention is vitality.  It connects you with others.  It makes you eager.  Stay eager.
~Susan Sontag

I find this quote quite motivating and wonderful.

  2. "It's all about paying attention". I find that is especially true now that i've been slowing down and taking photos with film. With digital I was way too snap-happy!

  11. You consistently pair evocative photographs with great quotes. I really enjoyed the black & white choice for the flowers - usually admired for their colour. B&W lends a meditative quality to the images not always present in colour flower photography.
