The simple realization that time lost is lost forever, is one I find utterly frightening.

Great photography is ultimately not about cameras; great photography is about great photographs.

A great photographer is a person who makes great photographs, not necessarily a person who owns a great camera or lens.

    there’s a lot of beauty conveyed by this shot…. the responsibility and trust given to the boy in charge of a not easy job, and his reciprical pride and knowledge that their trust has been so placed… there’s something to be said for those ‘old fashioned’ values, where the young in this ‘modern’ world don’t seem to be trusted to even transport themselves to school, and being escorted hither and thither in the family car… nice work monte :)

  • Thank Carol, I agree.
