Quotes taken from: 70 Inspirational Quotes for Photographers

The shutter goes off. The pic is captured most likely in millions of pixels, encoded by zeroes and ones. The moment has not passed you, but that memory is now documented. I love photography for the storytelling that it provides, and the way I can express myself with it. It allows me to give people a glimpse into my life. It takes me places.
