Photographers can be Poets

“Photography will thrill you and she will break your heart. Sometimes on the same day. Sometimes within the same moment. And know that she will not be true to you… she will desert you with her BFF ‘talent’ and go to Vegas, spend a ton on your credit card, meet some young hotshot whippersnapper and run off for a few days, trashing the Mustang and shootin’ up a casino, get drunk and possibly arrested.

But she will come back – unrepentant for sure, without apology and with a bit of an attitude… but back indeed. And you get to start the whole damn passionate thing over again.”

Taken from a post by Don Giannatti called “Why do you make photographs?” today.

It just about says it for me.
