Thoughtful Thursday Photography Quote: August 1

The artist is nothing without gift, but the gift is nothing without work. - Emile Zola
While this week's Thoughtful Thursday Photography Quote comes from a French writer, we have always liked this quote and applied it to many things in life including our photography.  

Emile Zola was considered one of the prime examples of naturalism and an important contributor to theatrical naturalism. He was a major player in the political liberalization of France and helped exonerate Alfred Dreyfus (yes, of the Dreyfus affair kind...).

We just needed a little reminder that in the end - all the hard work will pay off.  It comes down to this, each of us has our own gifts or natural talents.  But, you will only achieve at the highest level through an enormous amount of hard work put in over many years.  And that work is demanding and sometimes even painful.  In the end, it will all be worth it...
