Conversation with an artist
The camera is a
wonderful tool, but nine-tenth of people using it are simply button
pushers, who let off their cameras as one lets off a firework. -D. A.

Close your eyes for a brief amount of time, darkness, your see nothing,
now open them again...welcome back to reality, but whose reality?.
Not everone sees the same, forget about 20-20 vision, in life, you soon
find out that having perfect vision does not make you totally aware of
whats going on and happening around you.
I've met people
who are as blind as bats... but are not optically impaired. How many of
us are so wrapped up with the day never to look at the sky, the
reflections in a puddle or even the markings on our local currency,
money that we spend every day and slave away for, as if our lives
depend on it!
artists, maybe photographers too ( The latter I do not like to be
called! ) we need to train our eyes to see the un-noticable, only then
will our work have a deeper sense of meaning.
