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

For whatever we felt we celebrate the unbearable lightness of being.

For whatever we felt we celebrate the unbearable lightness of being.

Just as you knew it would be.

Just for me

The ignition starts.
Metropolis has nothing on this.
You're breathing in fumes, I taste when we kiss.
Take my hand, come back to the land
Where everything's ours, for a few hours.
Let me see you stripped down to the bone.
