My hat off to all you brilliant essayists. Haven't had the time to even contemplate creating something here, and only just now have had a change to see/read anything at all. Don, your essay... I exist in the place of not-knowing.

' posthumous's essay "is not a photo-essay, it's a photo-poem. An ode to photography ".

I printed his essay for reference. If I were to teach how to see, or photography, or simply explaining a process through words I would use it. Little things that are worth considering even when we have a challenge topic such as : bananas or dogs or forks….

objectivity simply isn’t out there, and that truth comes from us

I saw something happening, not sure what, and quickly took the shot

I throw layers on, try different blendings, and see what happens.

for images to “work,” they must do what paintings do, and stand not for a moment but for a state of mind, for a little world

Thanks for the kind words. Paul's words were just as good and his photos better. I'm glad I don't have to pick a winner.

"not for a moment, but for a state of mind". Don, your ability to "see" life, both in words and in pictures, is spot on brilliant... and most of why I remain here.

I was completely floored by the essays. I think Paul (' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_N.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_N.gif', '/') + 1) . ' ubique set a tone that that brought the best out of the rest of us. In this most amazing group of essays the one that stood out and had the most personal meaning to me was Don's "The Humble Art". I'm looking forward to revisiting all of the essays.
