“I think photography piles up the limitations more than any other medium I know, which is why for me photography is such an exciting and vital tool of expression. But it comes with the caveat: Murphy’s Law is built into the bones of every camera I have ever owned. And the limitations aren’t just mechanical. Everything about photography is a challenge. In 30 seconds, the sun will be down. Quick before the dog comes in and all the dust lands you know where. Just when everything is perfect, the camera needs reloading. I know, shoot digital, dummy.
To outwit the calamities, I have learned to formulate a partnership with spontaneity. Allowing limitations to become idea generators instead of idea killers means opening oneself up to creative solutions we might ordinarily never have known, nor anticipated.” (41)
