Quotes (3): Henri Cartier Bresson

I have been nominated by fellow photography blogger Angela Furtado (Shoot’nGo, Adventures  in Photography) to take part in a challenge to post my three favouritAventures e quotes (one each for three consecutive days). Thanks for the nomination, Angela!

I am not one for quotes, as a rule, but got looking at a few from famous photographers, and thought “why not?” with one caveat. I am meant to nominate 3 bloggers each day to take up the challenge, but like some others, I have decided to throw this open to anyone who wants to have a go… Cheating? Maybe..

So here is my quote for Day 3:

“To photograph: it is to put on the same line of sight the head, the eye and the heart.”
― Henri Cartier-Bresson



  1. You can’t argue with Henri Sue! Another very good quote.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. Ethereal and lovely as though floating in air…and works well with the quote.

  3. A great combination!

  4. Have loved your photographic quotes!

  5. An apt quote and a lovely photo.


  6. Lovely Sue and a great quote.. Such a difficult thing to achieve in actuality of course but it doesn’t stop us trying! 🙂

  7. Henri definitely knew what he was talking about! Lovely image Sue, works really well with pure white background!

  8. “A fine quotation is a diamond on the finger of a man of wit,
    and a pebble in the hand of a fool.” ~Joseph Roux
    You did very well, using apropos quotes and supporting
    and enhancing them with beautiful photos.
    Enjoyed the exercise … keep on keeping on.
    Love, hugs and blessings … ME and the Boss

  9. The perfect alignment indeed.

  10. Fragile beauty does it for me every time, Sue 🙂

  11. What a brilliant idea you had to use photographers quotes and I think Monsieur Cartier-Bresson would approve of your images.

  12. Beautifully done, Sue. Something tells me you will continue to make quote and image posts… 😉

    Spot on Sue ! That’s such a gorgeous photo too .

  14. Suzanne

    What a lovely delicate image.

  15. I’ve not heard that quote before, but it’s apt. Here’s my third contribution, from Annie Leibovitz: ‘One doesn’t stop seeing. One doesn’t stop framing. It doesn’t turn off and turn on. It’s on all the time’. Amen to that!
