There’s a new Gallery addition for Photography. It’s designed for “Art Photos” or what our eyes perceive as art…you know, the stuff that visually moves the spirit, stirs the senses, inspires interest or curiosity.
There’s a vast variance in people on the Forum and with it comes a wealth of visual experience. That’s especially true of us who are also artists and aspire to creation of visual beauty.
I’m hoping that the SF members will add to the Photo Gallery by sending pictures to me in e-mail. Now, people…please don’t send pics of your pets, your house, your cousin’s wedding, the new barbecue pit or the grandkids. All of that is very nice, I’m sure but it’s only meaningful to you personally and is good filler for the family albums. If you have a few photos of the scenery in your part of the country or something that inspired you with awe on vacation…send me a few. I can’t post ALL your photos of the Grand Canyon, but maybe the one or 2 that struck you as awesome. You get the idea. I’m hoping for some of the Beautiful fall leaf color changes or maybe mountains…sigh.
Well, you can see from the opening group what the scenery in my part of the world is. I never saw SWAMPS as anything beautiful. Because I’m a City-gal and never really wandered into them, viewing mostly from the sides of the highway, the real fearsome beauty never appeared to me. However, I am surrounded by a lot of family and friends who take full advantage of the scenery and are inspired by it. I STILL don’t venture into the wetlands…which frankly, scare the bejeezus out of me. I’ll get my pleasure and inspiration from the photos taken by the more adventurous people I know.
