Quotes of the week are Random:

A fool's brain digests philosophy into folly, science into superstition, and art into pedantry. Hence University education.

George Bernard Shaw
Irish dramatist & socialist (1856 - 1950)

The optimist proclaims that we live in the best of all possible worlds; and the pessimist fears this is true.

James Branch Cabell, The Silver Stallion, 1926

Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. Security does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than exposure.

Helen Keller
US blind & deaf educator (1880 - 1968)

Be not afraid of growing slowly, be afraid only of standing still.

Chinese Proverb

The law, in its majestic equality, forbids the rich as well as the poor to sleep under bridges, to beg in the streets, and to steal bread.

Anatole France, The Red Lily, 1894, chapter 7
French novelist (1844 - 1924)

I prefer the company of peasants because they have not been educated sufficiently to reason incorrectly.

Michel de Montaigne
French essayist (1533 - 1592)

Started with photography at the age of 9 with a Zeiss Ikon 6 x 6, later in adult live switched to Leica IIIf , M3 and SL.

About 5 years ago started with digital photography using a Lumix LX2, then an Olympus E600 and now a Canon 60D and mainly using Manual Focus lenses from a forgotten Era, mainly Leica

Personal Quote:

"The outcome of the Photograph depends largely, on the chosen subject and how it was taken, the camera itself is just a medium to register your idea's about the subject"

greetz Len.
