 Photography 
 
A photograph is more than just
    A gift to bring or send.
 And more than just the likeness of

A relative or friend

It is a kindly greeting and
    A memory to hold.
    Of happy times and pleasant things.

However new or old.

 It is a mirror that reflects
    Companionship and cheer.
    And now and then the wistfulness
    That turns into a tear.


A photograph is something to
    Adorn a desk or wall.
    Or carry in a pocket and
    Display to one and all.


It is a faithful portrait
    The smile that friendship shares
    To add its sunshine and to show
    That someone really cares

* Alfred Eisenstaedt *
1898 – 1995


Eisenstaedt was a German photojournalist most famous for his much celebrated photograph of V-J Day in Times Square, New York.

 “It is more important to click with people than to click the shutter.”

* Alfred Stieglitz *
1864 – 1946

Stieglitz was an American photographer internationally recognised as
being a pioneer of modern photography.

 “In photography, there is a reality so subtle that it becomes more real than reality.”

 “Wherever there is light, one can photograph.”

* Anne Geddes *
1956
“The best images are the ones that retain their strength and impact over the years, regardless of the number of times they are viewed.”
