Great quote – and spot on! If only we could do it every time – but maybe that’s what makes a great photographer?!
I repeat this as a sort of mantra, but too often fall short of what I would like to achieve!
I noticed this in your comment on my post, and I’m glad you posted it. Good reminders.
Thanks Lynn. See my reply to Noeline above.
