Friday Night Photography Quote:
Let me here call attention to one of the most universally popular mistakes that have to do with photography – that of classing supposedly excellent work as professional, and using the term amateur to convey the idea of immature productions and to excuse atrociously poor photographs. As a matter of fact nearly all the greatest work is being, and has always been done, by those who are following photography for the love of it, and not merely for financial reasons. As the name implies, an amateur is one who works for love; and viewed in this light the incorrectness of the popular classification is readily apparent.
— Alfred Stieglitz – in 1899

The limited compassion shown by these supposed Intelligent individuals that are to Run Our American Government is mind boggling.

Now I normally am Not fond of discussing Politics on my Art Photography page. But since I haven’t been able to do anything to show for my next discussion on lighting. I felt that just a Little bit of Current Events is worth it. All of the Women’s Marches around the world have been peaceful and have also broken some major Protest Records. As of the latest numbers I’ve heard 2.9 Million people have Protested against the Hate and Anti-Women American President.
