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

Tried some lighting techniques and some slight filtering to get this shot. I was quite pleased with it.

Well, you think I'm just a pretty face...

Boy you think it's gonna be alright
Call for your momma, you better get ready,
It's gonna be raining bloody evil tonight
Bloody shovel I'll be diggin' your grave
When the devil comes knockin'
He'll be calling for you babe.

I have had a picture with a fence in snow on a foggy day for a long time in my mind and this winter I was lucky enough to find exactly what I was searching for.

The Catacombs

Beneath Paris, France; October 2010

Underground art: The most surprising thing about the Catacombs is the artistry. What we saw was mostly leg bones and skulls, but they were placed so carefully, it was beautiful. It suggests how much respect the Parisians of 200 years ago had for their dead.

If you go: Be aware of a couple of things.

1. The Catacombs go on and on, probably a half-mile or so just of the ossuary (where the bones are), plus some other corridors and a few dozen steps up and down.

2. It gets wet in places, and don't wear your best shoes. I brought back some Catacombs mud on my shoes. I like it and will let it wear off, but just know that parts of the floor are a bit sloppy.

Streets of Dublin - Elevation, originally uploaded by davcare.

well I thought an Irish band would fit the content of the image... plus, the song really gives the idea of the frenetic life in the streets of the capital, i could picture myself up there again, walking fast past those sidewalks and bridges, listening to "elevation"...

crow at davis st beach lith fog small

This is the first picture I've taken with lith printing in mind and this is exactly how I visualized it...pretty rare for me.
I often take a walk to the beach at lunch especially when the weather turns "interesting". My camera of choice is the Olympus XA...don't leave home without it...loaded with Tri-x. Paper, Kentmere Warm VC Fiber Semi Matt, Labor Partner Lith developer.
