There's a bit of a running joke amongst my family and friends, that I am bound to take a good photograph, whip it into Photoshop and just "ruin" it. And it's not really meant in an unkind way, just their cumulative observations of my behaviour.
Therefore when I came across this quote by Veronica Stensby .....
"Truly the camera widens our vision and love for the natural world around us.
As an artist, my greatest challenge is to constantly switch gears from the fascinating realism and meticulous detail of photography to the personal vision of my own interpretation." (Veronica Stensby)
.......I had a good laugh and smiled widely, because clearly I am not alone! (Thank goodness for that!)
So now at the dinner table I can say with great confidence, I am NOT ruining the picture people, merely interpreting it according to my own personal vision!
Sounds quite grand doesn't it?
