Ongoing CHALLENGE !!!

If your picture has been blogged here, it means that it has appealed to over 300 art jurors (currently 50 active) for a whole week or more. That is an achievement!!!

... and 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 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
B&W Art Photography - Is Your Art universal

CF001287 Il Duomo di Milano (ArcaSwiss Rodenstock ApoSironar 45mm PhaseOne P25-bw)

The Duomo of Milan at 7 am. Should definitely be seen large.
Messaggio per gli amici di MW: Dopo tutta la fatica che ho fatto per mostrare che il Duomo è meglio dell'infame panettone che si vede da fuori, se non vinco la POTW questa volta mi incazzo!

So...I am back but with one sad news...

I consider this series as my personal tribute to the recent loss of my beloved Bettie Page.

May you rest in peace.

Free to flutter in memories of their wasted wings...but so tired........

Thanks to Andreea, Dianora (http://ro-stock.deviantart.com/) and PC, for some incredible brushes.


destination, originally uploaded by BeViewed.

I think of my body as a burden,
to always take it with me-
and feel its strange sensations coming from deep down my stomach,
~just before I get there!

roads are never truly seen-
only fractions of it, melting with the vision of poll lamps against the dark of night-
and the firm dedication of motion onward,
~wholly transported~...

if never been there before,
that should be the promised land,

omnia mea mecum porto.

Old prints taken on the evening before my mothers wedding, thought they were optimistic pictures at the time lookin at them now, i think my camera saw more of the future than my own feelings, they feel impending!
120 roll film developed in not enough dev. and agitated every 30 secs so the film would still develop but leave slightly underdeveloped bands and some drips...

Single exposure. No photoshop, no re-touching.

This photo is underneith and looking up at a large scale stainless steel sculpture entitled Cloud Gate by Anish Kapoor located in Chicago's Millennium Park. The reflecting surface is a double parabola converging in a concave dome, all of which gives rise to the multiple reflections.

Mud, glorious mud!

Mud, glorious mud!, originally uploaded by tripowski.

Elephants use mud to keep cool, as it dries more slowly than water. This is really important during October, as it's 40C - we only discovered when we arrived that the locals call it 'suicide month'. Doh! So much for a super-romantic honeymoon!

This large male was the only animal that came close to being dangerous while we were in Africa. He got rather close and agitated, and we had to withdraw behind some bushes under the cover of the ranger (we were on foot).

He then wandered off and started eating a tree. Obviously.
