They say a picture is worth a thousand words. But I wonder, what else do “they” say? In order to find out I’ve culled together the best quotes on the subject of photography. I hope they inspire you.
I am colorblind. And I am a photographer. In my particular case, and in the majority of those that are “color challenged”, being colorblind doesn’t actually mean we cannot see colors.
