Look out for it in October sometime.

Thank you for your feedback to PSSA, it is very much appreciated and we certainly take cognance of it.  Please continue to do this for us as it is all part of the communication strategy.

Ask yourself these questions every now again “Why do I do photography”  “Do I challenge myself enough in this hobby”?

Ansel Adams quotes:

  • “In photography there is a reality so subtle that it becomes more real than reality.” …
  • “There is one thing the photograph must contain, the humanity of the moment.” …
  • “Taking an image, freezing a moment, reveals how rich reality truly is.” …
  • “Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving.

Thank you
