John Berger – “What makes photography a strange invention is… light and time.”

John Berger
– “What makes
photography a
strange invention is
that its primary raw
materials are light
and time.”

The most beautiful picture is first, a negative, undeveloped, no exactness,

it’s not real, so can’t be realied upon for correctness,

until it is developed, to develop it, the positive raw materials of light and time are needed,

these two must be available,

so what’s that negative situation you are going through right now,

relax, pray and shine the light of patience and understanding on that dark path,

and it would be a matter of time before everything is alright.
