Santa Barbara's Old Spanish Days 2009 - Images of Fiesta

Fiesta Senorita

 Just living in a place is not enough. You can live in a community and not understand it. Just looking at it won't do....Look into the history of the area – why it started, how it developed. The more research you can do about the place, the more you may realize that you don’t know it as well as you thought you did.

Let the subject speak for itself. Be true to the subject. Pretty pictures are only an escape from the subject. Don’t photograph a good-looking branch just because it looks nice; the branch should mean something about the community. Photography is statement; it has to tell us things about a place.

- Berenice Abbott, The Best of Popular Photography, by Harvey V. Fondiller, p. 280
