Subject: [Leica] HCB quote

     ...and along the same lines, was it HCB who likened his
     entry into professional photography thusly; (paraphrasing)
     "...i got started much in the same way a woman enters
     prostitution. first you do it for fun. then you do it for
     your friends. eventually you do it for money"
     my apologies to any prostitutes on the list.

     >I seem to remember reading somewhere the following quote from HCB:
     >"Photography doesn't interest me, people do." Is this accurate and
     >does anybody know where it came from? Or am I just making up quotes
     >for famous people again?
