Photography Quotes

Photography is another form of art, it is a way to express yourself in all that you do. To show the world what its like when you capture a single moment in time, that will last forever. They say a picture is worth a thousand words. But what else does it say? Every one will have there own interpretation of what it says to them. For me a photograph tells a story of where you have been and where you have come from. What does it say to you?
