Quick Quotes: Jay Maisel

"It's not about going to new places, it's about seeing with new eyes"

Jay Maisel

Another great quote in support of the idea that your best images can be made close to home. They can be made at places that you can visit in all seasons and at all times of day. They can be made when you allow yourself to really 'see'.  Seeing is a skill that isn't easy. In fact it can be among the most difficult of things to do. It seems to sometimes come only to leave a short time later.  Best to work with it when the muse arrives!
