If your photos aren't good enough, you aren't close enough.

1. In some circumstances, I don't want to be that close
but that is one (of many) reasons I'll never be a great photographer. My hat off to those braver than me.

2. And he was right...
Those are memorable pictures, all of them.

He knew whereof he spoke...

Thanks for the reminder!

3. It would be a great challenge/exercise for those of us here to set up their gear with the widest
angle lens or zoom setting available, lock it in for a week, and go shooting. Myself. I would hide in a closet, but if I ventured out in day 3 or 4, I might learn a fraction of what those who get covers and stories in photo oriented mags like National Geographic or the defunct but archived RW Life Magazine http://images.google.com/hosted/life have known and practiced.

4. Life and Look inspired me to be a photographer. Nat geo was nice, but
It lacked the fire of the photojournalist one saw in those two magazines.
