Concerning the topic LIMITATIONS OF PHOTOGRAPHY:

- It takes a lot of imagination to be a good photographer.  You need
less imagination to be a painter, because you can invent things.
But in photography everything is so ordinary; it takes a lot of
looking before you learn to see the ordinary.

David Bailey

- The painter constructs, the photographer discloses.

Susan Sontag

Hahaha! That would make a great question to ask photographers: How
would you photograph God?

Here's the quote from {50}:

A photographer went to a socialite party in New York. As he entered
the front door, the host said, "I love your pictures -- they're
wonderful; you must have a fantastic camera." He said nothing until
dinner was finished, then: "That was a  wonderful dinner; you must
have a terrific stove."

-Sam Haskins

Boy, ain't that the truth?

Although, I've taken some accidental shots that turned out pretty nifty...

Even so, a great composition, with all the 'right' elements, is the
ultimate challenge.

lived in, so do I. I'm always looking beyond the surface. I've done

- I don’t think as artists we’re necessarily supposed to have a very
specific mission. I think we’re supposed to go towards what is
meaningless. And that can be some candy-ass shit. It really can.
