“There is a part of everything which is unexplored, because we are accustomed to using our eyes only in association with the memory of what people before us have thought of the thing we are looking at. Even the smallest thing has something in it which is unknown.”—Gustave Flaubert (via invisiblestories)
At the next event where you might be expected to take photographs (a national holiday, a family event, a vacation), don’t take photographs when you would normally do so. Take them rigorously at predetermined times (every hour, the same time every day, etc) no matter what is going on. Instead of smiling groups or shots of individuals posing before a landmark or scenery, you will have photos of people arguing; people looking bored; people asleep; nothing happening.
