    Biography: Gone crazy. Back soon. Follow my blog for my thoughts on photography, art, & digital PP.

    I'm a shameless admirer of floral photography & as I vote I'll be looking through the challenges for floral shots that offer food for thought as well as for the senses. I'll post the Gilded Lily to the ones that inspire me the most. If I can find any. Flower shots are rare.

    I started The Flying Pig thread to highlight interesting abstract entries in Expert challenges. I'm always looking, but there aren't that many of those, either.

    Art is everything we do, from a mathematical equation to a manhole cover, from the atomic bomb to the artificial heart. Every form of human expression says "I am here!" It's the human spirit. It wants to explore, understand, & leave a mark. The human spirit recognizes the uncertainty of the future & responds with curiosity, energy, humor, fear, & courage. We can't avoid art. Art is. Art often results in artworks & artifacts. What remains after centuries, the artifacts that have survived over time, are still here because one generation of people after the next found a reason to keep them around, or at least couldn't figure out how to get rid of them. If even one the artifacts of your art is to last for centuries after your death, it has to speak to people you know nothing about. And it has to be durable.

    Art is everything. After that, it's just semantics.

    Abstract. It takes a little getting used to, if you're not used to it, but an abstract is meant to be a different experience for each viewer. Different, unique, private even.

    There's that first moment when your eye is searching for something to see. Another moment of recognition. If neither one of these moments happen, there should be enough in the elements of composition, line, shape, contrast, to give the eye a reason to linger long enough for the mind, an expert at pattern recognition, to find 'something' to recognize. Every mind is unique, so every mind will recognize its own subjects.
