Art Is In The Eye Of The Beholder

57.365_absract_colors

You know what's cool about being a "photographer" ... as opposed to just "some guy with a camera" ?

I can post up a picture like the one above; tell you that it's "Art" (who's deep meaning, I'll leave to you to interpret); and you might just have to believe me. ;-)

Todd, the "guy with a camera" probably could have just taken the easy way out and gone with the helicopter picture for his project365 today:

CH-47-Chinook

But every once in a while, it's more fun to step outside the box, shake things up a bit, and try to make people think (darn, wish I knew a few more cliches) :-D

So, did I make the right decision?

Is "funky cool colors" more interesting than "boring old helicopter"?

Either way, it's too late now, I'm about to hit the publish button on this post.

I hope you enjoy my "art" (whichever one you chose).

  1. I have another funny to share when it comes to photography, as a female photographer I am more often not the "gal with camera", but the girl that "plays with boys stuff". I still cherish the memory of a bystander commenting to me, "Wow, you have a big one!" as I was using a tele for taking images during a cricket game ;-) SY

    PS I like the helicopter one better, but as they say, beauty is in the eye of the beholder!

  2. Truth be told, I like helicopter one better too. But, yesterday was such a long, tiring day, that I actually forgot I'd taken that picture. I'd already uploaded the "Art" one to flickr, and started writing this blog post before I remembered.

    It's all good though, I've already posted a few aircraft pictures. So, sometimes it's fun to do something a bit off the wall.

  3. Todd when it comes to the art department I am not that well blessed. I enjoy your photographs a lot, but I am with the helicopter on this one. :-)

  4. lol ... yes, I think if I was going to do the whole "this is art" type blog post, I really could have waited until I had a better picture to do it with.

    Next time, given the choice, I'll go with the helicopter :-)

  5. It was hard to decide between the two. I like the colors of the top, but found the chinook more interesting because it is what my son flies in.
