Al jaren verzamel ik quotes op Pinterest op mijn bord P H O T O. Q U O T S., #loveit en met name fotografie Quotes. Quotes of citaten zijn vaak heel erg inspirerend en weten in een paar woorden de kern te raken.

Ik zoek ook graag quotes die passen bij een fotoshoot als ik een blog schrijf. Deze versterkt dan vaak het gevoel dat ik krijg als ik naar de foto's kijk.

Mijn meest favoriete quotes wil ik graag met jullie delen, want wie weet worden jullie ook geinspireerd.

Kom je ergens een mooie (fotografie) quote tegen, plaats hem hieronder of stuur hem vooral naar mij door, dat zou ik erg leuk vinden, dan kan ik hem aan mijn verzameling toevoegen.

Lees en laat je inspireren.
