weekly photo challenge: curves
Share a picture of CURVES and explain why you chose that picture!
‘A photograph,’ it has been said, ‘shows the art of nature rather than the art of the artist.’ This is mere nonsense, as the same remark might be applied equally well to all the fine arts. Nature does not jump into the camera, focus itself, expose itself, develop itself, and print itself. On the contrary, the artist, using photography as a medium, chooses his subject, selects his details, generalizes the whole in the way we have shown, and thus gives his view of nature. This is not copying or imitating nature, but interpreting her, and this is all any artist can do. ~Henry Emerson *
