Photo of the Day (on Flickr): Toe the Line


Toe the Line, originally uploaded by Sheila_P.

Now that’s a phrase I’m not particularly fond of…

I am, however, quite fond of the works of Rodney Smith. He has a new blog which, I think, you’ll find quite interesting because it’s filled with gems like this one:

“To say a photographer has a vision is to say the photographer has something unique to say to about the world. Why do some photographers have something unique to say, when so many others just shoot pictures that are general and lacking vision? Most people would say it has to do with talent. Maybe. But maybe not. Maybe it has nothing to do with talent. Maybe it has to do with the ability to express one’s feelings. The person who presents a strong vision has figured out a way to express his or her feelings, while others are struggling to do that. Talent, then, becomes not so much artistic talent, though that may be a good part of it, but rather emotional talent.”
