Ansel Adams
[Photographer, b. 1902, San Francisco, d. 1984, Carmel, California.]

 When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence. 
 A photograph is usually looked at—seldom looked into. 
 Landscape photography is the supreme test of the photographer—and often the supreme disappointment. 
 Sometimes I do get to places just when God’s ready to have somebody click the shutter. 
 There are no rules for good photographs, there are only good photographs. 
 We must remember that a photograph can hold just as much as we put into it, and no one has ever approached the full possibilities of the medium. 
 Not everybody trusts paintings but people believe photographs. 
 You bring to photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.
