    I just read a quotation from Max Frisch:

    "Auf Reisen gleichen wir einem Film, der belichtet wird. Entwickeln wird ihn die Erinnerung."

    which translates (I hope...) roughly to: "On a journey we resemble a film that gets exposed. It will be developed by our memories."

    What a beautiful comparison! - which only can be understood by film photography.

    Poetic. It went into my inspiration text file right off. :smile:

    I guess photography is a journey in itself, a discovery of what is in front of us, in a given moment.
