  1. One idea I have is for the quote, “No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path.” – Buddha; we could have a person with their hands in their pocket walking down a pathway, a hood over their head while the sun shines down on them.
    Another idea would be for the quote, “But O, how bitter a thing it is to look into happiness through another man’s eyes.” – William Shakespeare; the picture could be a close up of someone’s eyes, with a glimpse of their smile, showing that they are happy.
    One final idea is for the quote, “It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light.” – Aristotle Onassis; we could take a picture of someone in a dark room looking up towards the ceiling as a bright light shines behind him.

    im thinking you could probibly have someone with a big foot make a print in the mud and have someone with a smaller foot put theirs in it.

    “You don’t take a photograph, you make it.”
    maybe have a photo printed but have half of it cut off and have someone drawing the other half.

  3. “But O, how bitter a thing it is to look into happiness through another man’s eyes.”
    one of my ideas i have for this photo would be to have an up close image of someones eye, and out the face of someone else in the eye as if they were looking into someone. I would also photograph an eye and put an image of something that used to make the person happy in the eye.
    William Shakespeare

    “It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.”
    An idea I have for this photograph would be to photograph me looking at all my little girl clothes and all the items that have made me who I am now, showing what I have been through and how I became who I am now.
    I could also photograph someone else and kind of make a timeline of their life and how they have become we they are now.
    E. E. Cummings

    “The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls.”
    I could take a picture of someone washing their hands that are clearly dirty and write on the dust activity that someone goes through during the day and have a camera or a piece of paper and a pencil around it showing that he wants to go take some art.
    I could also make a photograph that shows someone drawing but leaving dust on the paper that shows that they didn’t wash off the dust of their life.
    Pablo Picasso

  4. “It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light.”
    Aristotle Onassis. For this quote I want to take a picture of someone in the shadows stepping out into the light of the sun. Or to have the light outlining their body or part of their body and a small glimpse of light on the face.
    “I have had dreams and I have had nightmares, but I have conquered my nightmares because of my dreams.” Jonas Salk. For this quote I have an idea with a dream catcher that’s raised into the sunlight and to capture that picture.

  6. “It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light.” i would have a person in a dark room and somehow make light appear in their hand. “No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path.” have someone sit in a pathway with no one there, that would show that only you can be there for yourself and only you can walk your path. “You don’t take a photograph, you make it.” take half a picture and then take another picture of a person laying out props or some sort and Photoshop that in.

  9. “Find a place where there is joy, and the joy will burn out the pain.” – Joseph Campbell
    My main idea for this photo is to do a self portrait of myself with my headphones on, holding them tight to my head, but almost like a silhouette. Music is the place where I find the most joy.

    “It is only in sorrow bad weather masters us; in joy we face the storm and defy it.” – Amelia Barr
    My idea for this quote is to take a photo of someone in the rain but with a huge smile on their face. I think it would represent an exact image of what this quote is saying. I would probably shot this outside in like a big yard or in the street.
