Born on this day – Alfred Eisenstaedt

People will never understand the patience a photographer requires to make a great photograph, all they see is the end result. I can stand in front of a leaf with a dew drop, or a rain drop, and stay there for ages just waiting for the right moment. Sure, people think I’m crazy, but who cares? I see more than they do!

Alfred Eisenstaedt (German-born American photographer and photojournalist) – December 6, 1898 – August 23, 1995.
