"If I had to choose between the worlds best equipment and no Vision, or a Kodak Brownie and my Vision…I’ll take the Brownie. Why? Because with Vision even a Brownie is enough. Of course equipment is important, but it’s not the key to a great image.

Ansel Adams said:

Do me a favor: next time you introduce a “professional photographer,” try saying “talented” instead. It will spread a bit of joy on a photographer’s day, which might just help them create a bit of magic, beauty and love…”

“In verità vi dico: ogni volta che avete fatto queste cose a uno solo di questi più piccoli, l'avete fatto a me” Matteo 25, 40
