I walked around the streets towards the end of the day. In a new place, I wanted to photograph everything, everything. So much to look at, sometimes it was better to put the camera down and just look. But not for long…. I looked through the viewfinder. Ah.
As photographs give people an imaginary possession of a past that is unreal, they also help people to take possession of space in which they are insecure.
Susan Sontag On Photography
When you can wander around a new city, with only excitement and a new camera – well the world is your oyster
I will not lend thee a penny.
Why then the world’s mine oyster,
Which I with sword will open.
Not a penny.
