From "How I Came to Photograph Clouds" by Alfred Stieglitz:

I was in the midst of my summer's photographing...

My mother was dying. Our estate was going to pieces. The old horse of 37 was being kept alive by the 70-year-old coachman... all about me disintegration—slow but sure: dying chestnut trees—all the chestnuts in this country have been dying for years: the pines doomed too—diseased... the world in a great mess...

So, I made up my mind... to photograph clouds to find out what I had learned in 40 years about photography...

-Excerpted from The Amateur Photographer & Photography, Vol. 56, No. 1819, p. 255, 1923 reproduced here: http://www.jnevins.com/steiglitzcloud...
