THE HUMBLE WORDS AND LIFE OF ANSEL ADAMS

By May 20, 2014Humility, Philosophy

Ansel Adams famously observed, “A true photograph need not be explained, nor can be contained in words.”

The great photographer/conservationist will be forever remembered for both his artistic integrity and good nature. “I did get a few good photographs in Yosemite but I fear not enough for a book! There is always another time,” he wrote about his most recent (and ultimately final) photo shoot.

Such humility should serve to remind us all, “A true life need not be explained, nor can be contained in words.” Our good deeds, the memories we make and hopefully a few good photos are the best we can hope to leave behind.
