“Photography is magic. You can stop time itself, catch slivers of moments to savor and share time and again... A photograph is a sharing, it says ‘Hey, look at this!’ It’s a miracle is what it is. And when you’re going good and you get a new picture you love, there’s nothing better. That’s the joy of photography, and the fun.”
—Jill Freedman, documentary photographer (Thanks to alert WORDster and sharp shooter Scott Sommerdof)
