Purpose ...

Ongoing CHALLENGE !!!
If you see one single picture in this group that you think is not art, please say so (by commenting on it) and tell us why. If you are convincing - we will remove it. This group is to show case the most resistive pictures from the
Color Art Photography - Is Your Art universal

If your picture has been blogged here, it means that it has appealed to dozens of art jurors for a whole week or more. Congratulations!!!
Hmmm... but what does that mean ??? well according to This ... it means your picture is "... extremely resistant to people wanting to get rid of it", :)

If you found this blog interesting you can also check
The BW Art from Flickr ...

" ...ONLY IN ART DOES IT STILL HAPPEN THAT A MAN WHO IS CONSUMED BY DESIRES PERFORMS SOMETHING RESEMBLING THE ACCOMPLISHMENT OF THOSE DESIRES AND THAT WHAT HE DOES IN PLAY PRODUCES EMOTIONAL EFFECTS - THANKS TO ARTISTIC ILLUSION - JUST AS THOUGH IT WERE SOMETHING REAL. PEOPLE SPEAK WITH JUSTICE OF THE "MAGIC OF ART" AND COMPARE ARTISTS TO MAGICIANS. ..."

Because of the problems in Kashmir the past summer due to a piece of land that was supposed to be given for the Amarnath pilgrims, the BJP ( Hindu Fundamentamist Party) called for a strike and suddenly Pushkar was empty, quiet and closed. One shop remained half-opened.

Bugia...


Bugia..., originally uploaded by Jacopo Gennari.

Ho bisogno di dire delle bugie, ma non per vivere meglio, ma per andare in una terza, quarta dimensione, che è quella dell'irreale e dell'immaginario, del fantastico, dell'affascinante, del sensuale, l'erotismo del pensiero che non è assolutamente bianco o nero...

Geleceğim bazen uykudayken sen ...

Geleceğim bazen, uykudayken sen
Beklenmedik uzak bir konuk gibi
Sokakta bir başıma koyma beni
Kapıyı sürgüleme üstümden.
Usulca girecek bir yere ilişeceğim
Bir zaman, karanlıkta, bakacağım yüzüne
Görüntün doyasıya dolunca gözlerime
Seni kucaklayacak ve çıkıp gideceğim...

Edina doesn't like her profile, so i suspect she's not a fan of this shot (people never like their best features - you learn that quickly as a portraitist, it's exhausting) but I LOVE it. She looks beautiful, brilliant & imperious, exactly what i was going for (sculptor, it fits).
Another pic I could never have gotten with the kit lens. Thanks to Mike for the new lens & Brenda for the focus pointers. Some day I'll figure out how actually to use a camera. Oh, the pictures I'll take then...

Fountain in downtown Tulsa, between Denver & Cheyanne and between 3rd and 4th.

(This is where I took the picture of the little girl in August. I actually took this one just five days later...but forgot I'd taken it.)

Added to the Cream of the Crop pool as my personal favorite.

I'm not generally a very big fan of my own photos, but I really like this one.
