‘Photography is pretty simple stuff. You just react to what you see, and take many, many pictures.’

Elliott Erwitt


Take advantage of the ambiguity in the world. Look at something and think what else it might be.  Roger von Oech

(Could some intelligent person help me translate this quote correctly…?)
