Happy Birthday Dorthea Lange



One should really use the camera as though tomorrow you’d be stricken blind. To live a visual life is an enormous undertaking, practically unattainable. I have only touched it, just touched it.

-Dorthea Lange-



  1. Inspiring!

  2. Love this image – and it speaks to your Yosemite post on the 26th. She originally drove right past the sign near a dirt road that said “Pea Pickers.” She went another 20 miles, then turned around. This was the first picture she took when she arrived. She almost drove right past her most famous image. Life’s full of those moments!

    • Thanks for your comments Linda. Life really is full of those moments, it’s up to us to recognize them and make something out of them. :)
