Quote of the week – Edward Weston #3

When the subject matter is forced to fit into preconceived patterns, there can be no freshness of vision. Following rules of composition can only lead to a tedious repetition of pictorial cliches.

MFPOTW – Steetley Pier beach

The Steetley Pier near Hartlepool. It is a great place for photography.

Highly recommended. I hope to get back there at some point in 2021.

So how was the year 2020.

This year was everything but normal.

Pandemic changed everything that we planned and with no travel, there were a lot less photographic opportunities. Same applies for exhibitions and festivals.

War is like an aging actress: more and more dangerous and less and less photogenic.
