Ansel Adams Quotes > In my mind's eye, I visualize...

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Pinterest


In my mind's eye, I visualize how a particular... sight and feeling will appear on a print. If it excites me, there is a good chance it will make a good photograph. It is an intuitive sense, an ability that comes from a lot of practice.

Thier two is not the? real two, thier four is not the real four; so that every word they say chagrins us and we know not where to begin to set them right.?Meantime nature is not slow to equip us in the prison uniform of the party to which we adhere.? We come to wear one cut of face and figure, and aquire, by degrees, the gentlest asinine expression.
