After spending so long looking at the historic and contemporary view of the Sublime I spent a little time looking back through my own work to identify a few photographs that might represent some traditional Burkian Sublime attributes. They are from a time when I walked and photographed regularly in the Gran Sasso range in Abruzzo Italy and my interpretation of the Sublime may be strongly influenced by an irrational fear of heights.

“If your pictures aren’t good enough, you aren’t reading enough”
"True, there are photographers who are failed artists, but so are most artists"
"Everything that needs to be said has already been said. But, since no one was listening, everything must be said again."
"Though nothing earth-shattering seems to be going on, take photographs anyhow. This helps you remember what happened today, which will be far more remarkable in the light of memory."
