Laymen learn to read photographs the way they do headlines, skipping over them quickly to get the gist of what is being said. Photographers, on the other hand, study them with the care and attention to detail one might give to a difficult scientific paper or a complicated poem. - Howard S. Becker - Afterimage, May-June 1975 [cited in: Creative Camera October 1975, p. 329]

When people look at my pictures I want them to feel the way they do when they want to read a line of a poem twice. - Robert Frank - LIFE (26 November 1951), p. 21

A normal person sees a storm, thinks help and runs away
A photographer sees that storm, and runs the other way
Off into the cold they go, the wind, the rain and more
To capture pics no matter what, of all the things they saw
Watching all the huge waves crashing, defiantly they stand
Looking out from beneath the pier, with camera in hand
Why do we do such stupid things, like photograph the snow
We can’t resist to get that pic, so off we always go
We see the world through rule of thirds, and many shades of grey
The search to get the perfect shot, continues every day
- Dean Thorpe - The poem: "The photographer" by Dean Thorpe.
