To suggest is to create

Just a girl in a cafe engrossed in a good book. Who she is and what she is reading we can only surmise and let ourselves dream of all the wonderful riches stored in books.

My philosophy on photography include this great quote

“To define is to destroy, to suggest is create”.
Stephane Mallarme

For me photography has always been about the essence and the suggested.

It’s one of the ten useful photography quotes on the Tips and Tricks page

of my website

I only mention the Tips and Tricks page of my website as a lot of new followers of my blog may not be aware of it.

    Intriguing image Andy. I agree with the quote. I often think that to strive for “perfection” in photography is to miss the point, and a lot of shots! 🙂

      Hi Jennifer the quote along with many others came from a book called “Perception & Imaging” by Dr Richard Zakia published in 2002. Thanks for dropping by and commenting. Andy
