I do like this quote as it not only has a personal significance but also links nicely with photography and choice of subject matter. Often people feel the need to travel in order to see new things, even when there is much to see on our own doorsteps if we'd only open our eyes. I discovered this when I gave up getting on aircraft.
Studying photography, has now taught me to see things in an altogether different way. Sometimes the most mundane, simple objects, or seemingly uninteresting views can now take on new significance.
