PASTIMES help pass time

Everyone enjoys PASTIMES, right? Would it be a stretch to point out that photography is one of my favorite PASTIMES? Some say that photography is not an art. What is art? Form, light, textures. What is photography? Form, light, textures. I believe the photo I have chosen to share of clumps of reeds floating in the water at dusk depicts form, light and texture; I give you art.

    this is magical, I am having a difficult time seeing what is reflection versus what is real, and I think I see Dan’s alligator…super colours super tones, light, who would argue that this photo isn’t art?

    Superb composition ! Wonderful use of light and colour. It has the classic qualities of a Japanese illustration.
    Where sky kisses water
    The reeds bend.
    Silent joy.

    Beautiful! If this isn’t art, I don’t know what is! Some things labeled art are much less artsy than most photography. Art vs Craft…it’s an argument that has no conclusion and who cares? Just keep creating whatever satisfies that inner need.
