A BIT OF ME (ME) – ARTISTRY — APRIL 16

Welcome to another edition of A Bit of Me (Me), hosted by There’s A Book.

As usual, our prompt from our leader helps us dig down a bit, exploring those bits and pieces of ourselves.

This Weeks Question: What is your favorite type of art? Or do you happen to have a favorite painting/artist/sculpture/etc.?

Art is in the eye of the beholder.  Isn’t that something you’ve found to be true?  I am enamored of many artistic expressions, but my all-time favorite is PHOTOGRAPHY AS ART.
When someone captures an image on film (or digitally, as today’s technology dictates), we can see another version of art.
Since some of you know that my eldest son is a photographer who has been capturing European images for several years now, I cite him as the perfect example of photography as art.
In my blog header today, I am sharing an image he captured when he was quite young, and the subject was his sister, at age fifteen.
A couple of years ago, he focused on the Berlin Wall, under reconstruction, and showcased the process from start to finish.
The Wall Under Reconstruction


A Piece of the Reconstructed Wall

And here’s one more:

In some ways, this is art twice created:  first, from the painters brush to the wall; and then, captured by a camera.

What are your artistic choices?  Why don’t you stop by and share…..

  2. Photography is absolutely an art — and a good photograph is just breathtaking. Your son’s photos are wonderful — thank you for sharing! If you’re interested in photography/the life of a photographer, you might like A Fierce Radiance. It’s a novel about a WWII Life magazine photographer (and a bunch of other plot) but features some really lovely passages about telling a story via a photo essay.
