Photo Hunt - Art


I can't locate the dock to my camera since we've moved so I cannot photograph any of my paintings! This is a photo I took last summer, after managing to catch some water drops on it. I tweaked the settings on the camera and came up with this image - almost glowing. I don't think it truly qualifies as "art."
Art is very personal and very much in the eye of the beholder. I hope you enjoy this...

Hey Gracie glad to see you doing stuff. Did you put the code for linky's in your template yet??? Just wondering. I might be asking a dumb question, been known to happen. I love the pick of the flower very pretty.

Beautiful...nothing like mother nature and her art work if you ask me....such a vivid hot pink. It's a hibiscus too, one of my favorite flowers

Happy photo hunting

I think it qualifies as art as it's beautiful to look at plus just growing a flower like that takes some art, too!

jenny said...

Your photography is the art today! ;-) This is the kind of art God makes for us to enjoy, too.

Hi Gracie. Nature is the best artist of them all. We call this flower "gumamela".

Art is art, if you found it beautiful and creative then it's considered art. And it is very beautiful.

Imma ( Alice) said...

A flower in itself is Mother Nature's art work. A well done photograph of said flower is also art, in my opinion. Not everyone can take a good photo.

Everyone is invited to my Art Exhibition. Hope to see you there.

Travis said...

Photographs can be art, especially when they are composed so wonderfully as this one.

Vader's Mom said...

I think it qualifies as art! Beautiful, beautiful shot.

lissa said...
