Be a poet, not a reporter. Any good camera can make a good reproduction, but it takes a piece of junk to make a Lomo. Make the ordinary look extraordinary!

Each picture should be like a small poem. Poems should have titles.

The happy accident is a warm reminder that we are not in control of the universe.

The vagaries of film remind us that life isn't about having things go our way, it's about how we handle it when it doesn't.

Shoot with abandon but edit like a miser!


GOD, Grant Me:
The Spontaneity to photograph what catches my eye.
The Serenity to slow down and compose and adjust my camera settings.
The Wisdom to know when to do which.

I DON'T TAKE PICTURES OF CATS (I like cats but I don't photograph them)

" I am seeking, I am striving, I am in it with all my heart." - Vincent Van Gogh

"Life is like photography, you need the negatives to develop." - a lomographer.

"Our Heads are Round So That Our Thoughts Can Change Direction." - Francis Picabia

"The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result." - Albert Einstein

"I'm going to ram that camera up your ass." - various people in multiple locations. You should be told this a few times a year or you aren't trying hard enough.
