Weekly Photo Challenge: Work of Art

A painting or a Photo?

Many times, standing in front of a picture at an art gallery, I couldn’t tell if it was a painting or a photo. I leaned forward, tracing lines and then walked around it, checking from all sides. Sometime I still couldn’t tell. One day, I got tired of my behavior and asked myself, “Does it really matter? It’s a piece of art that I appreciate – isn’t that enough? “

Coming back from my trip to France, I’m stunned at how many beautiful photos I have taken. I know I didn’t suddenly become a great photographer, even though I had improved somewhat since I started follow several wonderful photographer blogs. Where do those wonderful pictures come from?

I couldn’t wait to go through all my pictures, but each photo deserved so much attention. It was after reviewing about 100 of them, I ran to my husband and said, “You know what? The scenery looks better in photo. I mean it didn’t look this pretty when I was there!”

I am convinced that there is an artist living inside of my camera. I like his work.
