Day 4. A Good Quote

Day 4. Be amazed

Day 4. Be amazed: Be amazed by the things, the color we see everyday.

Red is a fascinating color. The lips, the blood, the pop, the sun, the girl in the Schindler’s List, the rose in the American Beauty, angry and shy, chilly and cherry. Here’s a good quote I read from book about photojournalism:

To see life; to see the world; to eyewitness great events; to watch the faces of the poor and the gestures of the proud; to see strange things-machines, armies, multitudes, shadows in the jungle and on the moon; to see man’s work-his paintings, towers, and discoveries; to see things thousands of miles away, things hidden behind walls and within rooms, things dangerous to come to; the women that men love and many children; to see and to take pleasure in seeing; to see and be amazed; to see and be instructed. Thus to see, and be shown, is now the will and new expectancy of half mankind. To see, is the mission now undertaken by a new kind of publication.

“Introduction to the First Issue of Life,” Life, November 23, 1936,3.

I really like this quote. I have to remind you that TV and handy camera haven’t invented during the time of 1930s. The magazine has brought the world to the readers ever since.
