“I choose to be a photographer not a re-toucher”

Just listening to an episode of This Week in Photography and one of the hosts said this:

I choose to be a photographer not a re-toucher

I think that is such an awesome phrase and it sums up exactly how I think about music. I’m a musician not a producer. I don’t want to spend time huddled over a computer making one thing sound like another or assembling pieces of other things into a new thing. I just want to play guitar and sing songs.
