Thanks to John Paul Caponigro for these quotes that include the "explorer" theme to creativity:
All art is a kind of exploring. To discover and reveal is the way every artist sets about his business. - Robert Flaherty
An artist is an explorer. He has to begin by self-discovery and by observation of his own procedure. - Henri Matisse
I'm attracted to images that come from a personal exploration of a subject matter. When they have a personal stamp to them, then I think it becomes identifiable. - Leonard Nimoy
Not all who wander are lost. - J R R Tolkien
Back to one of my favorite photo destinations - Beaver Creek State Park. This is the back side of the Old Mill.
