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. Spencer, "Pictures on a page : photo-journalism, graphics and picture editing" by Harold Evans, page: 41

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!

As 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.

Great shot and great words to go with it! Luckily, we shutterchancers can look at the world with curious eyes!

Good shot. I'd like to hear why you chose to put that mirrored image of the guitarist in the background though...
amazing shot. Love it

Liking the shot a lot bro. Only thing I'm not feeling 100% is the overblown bit left hand, apart from that, darn this shot should be mine smile

Lovely!

Like the shot, very nice. I also ponder on the same thing that Veloran said. The mirrored in the background reminds me of Hitman, the game.
