Moin Leute, heute geht es bei lütte Freiheit mal nicht um Bilder, sondern um Gedanken und Worte. Genauer gesagt um Zitate von berühmten Fotografen.

Mich haben die folgenden Zitate bewegt. Einige durch ihre schlichte, erkenntnisreiche Logik, andere durch ihren feinen Humor. Lass Dich gerne von den folgenden Zitaten inspirieren, zum Nachdenken oder zum Lächeln bringen. Vielleicht haben sie Auswirkungen auf Deine fotografische Herangehensweise oder geben Deinen Bildern eine neue Tiefe, vielleicht auch nicht…  Alles kann, nichts muss J
