Safe in the Harbour

“A ship is safe in harbor, but that's not what ships are for.”
John A. Shedd, "Salt from My Attic", 1928

I heard this quote the other day during a speech by Dr. J.P. Pawliw-Fry  . Dr. Pawliw-Fry is an excellent speaker and if you have a chance to hear him speak, take adavantage of it.

I thought that this image went well with the quote. There ships are all tied up, sails down doing nothing. That is not what they were meant to do. Although this may be very applicable to many other areas of our lives, it can be specifically applied to your photography. Your camera was not made to sit in your bag. It was made to capture your creative vision. So go grab you camera and make so images.
