Blessed are they who see beautiful things in humble places where other people see nothing. ~Camille Pissarro

 

How beautiful is this quote and especially true for photographers!

Camille Pissarro was a painter in the early 1900s who painted beautiful scenes including rural and urban French life. Painters and photographers have so much in common including looking around at the mundane details and creating beautiful art that no one else sees.

Looking around…

Choosing your scene…

Manipulating the light…

The colors…

The angles…

Retelling the story as you see it in your mind…

Not necessarily as you see it in real life standing there…

I love the stories we create and tell as artists…

And how true… Blessed are they who see beautiful things in humble places where other people see nothing.
