An instrument to see

P. Wallen Portrait, San Francisco 1930

“You put your camera around your neck along with putting on your shoes, and there it is, an appendage of the body that shares your life with you. The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.”
Dorothea Lange, from J. Star’s Flickr profile

Compassionate photography is a symbiotic relationship between camera and photographer. I need to carry my camera around with me more often.
