Take only pictures, leave only footprints is a phrase I grew up with. My family was always outdoorsy, and as kids we always wanted to collect leaves and rocks we found on hikes. But my Mom always told us that we had to leave wild places exactly as we found them… take only pictures, leave only footprints.
The theme of keeping things raw and un-touched has followed me and I find that those are the places I enjoy exploring the most. With it’s reference to photography, it was the perfect slogan for Renegade Camera. The origins of the phrase are unknown, but after some research I found out that it was primarily used by the Baltimore Grotto, a caving society based in Maryland (the same place where I’m from! ) It’s a call for people to protect the wild places we have left and a message I hope to spread.
