    More likely to if you’ve got a actual camera, Janis.

    There are some things you just can’t take a good picture of.
    Unless you’re Ansel Adams.

    You can’t catch a mild breeze in a photo.

    I try to memorize the look and feel of a magnificent day to give me enery during a bleak winter. Photos help, but memory is more subtle.

    My 7 year old took a beautiful pic of the sunset with my phone.

    Had a friend whose hobby was going places and trying to duplicate Ansel Adam photos, right down to season and time of day. He would hang his pictures next to copies of the originals. It was always interesting to compare the prints, which were years or decades apart.

    1. The camera doesn’t make the photograph. The photographer makes the photograph. Believing otherwise is the great mistake that separates people who aren’t photographers from people who are. The cheapest Instamatic in the right hands produces better work than the most expensive Nikon in the wrong hands. I’m living proof of that; I used to do that to my father all the time when I was a kid and he had the Nikon. 2. Capturing any experience, no matter how evanescent or mysterious, in a photograph, is exclusively a question of the creativity of the photographer.

    david_42: But was he using the zone system? A lot of Adam’s talent was manifested in the darkroom as well as the field. And did he use that big box camera? A lot of factors can’t be duplicated.

    Real cameras work better than camera phones.

    This has me remembering a “Mad About You” episode where Yoko Ono commissioned Paul to make a short film about “the wind.” He drove himself crazy before he finally admitted he just couldn’t do it as he’d like. He was loath to tell her, you don’t let Yoko down, after all! When he finally did, her attitude was, “No big deal. It was just a suggestion.”

    Pictures should let you drift off for a few moments.
