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

Heygate, originally uploaded by Lewis K. Bush.

Like many post-war estates Heygate developed a reputation for crime and is soon to be demolished. I wanted to capture the utopian, 'brave new world' feel that the place must once have had, but now on the eve of its destruction.

A studio shot with Ashley. Interested to hear interpretations of this piece. I never know if other people are seeing what I see in my figure work.

Lighting: Single B800 strobe in large softbox high camera right.

Polio and wheelbarrows

Sharing the crack with my father last night and conversation moved to my uncle who passed away on Sunday morning at a decent age. Dad talked about how his brother had got polio at a young age and how my granny had to take him in a wheelbarrow to the doctors...a different time but not that long ago. The title of the photo sprung to mind as they used to live at Tore...a wee place on the Black Isle in the background of the shot.

Leaves, originally uploaded by IK 169.

It was very cloudy outside. Lighting was perfect so I went to my front yard with my Hasselblad with 32000 ISO film loaded in it and shot whole roll trying to get this photograph. It is very dramatic in it is own way. It reminds me a lot about the ages of Pictorialism...
