Share Your World: 22 October 2018

Name two books that have influenced you, and share how?

Hmmm… Choosing only two books out of a lifetime of voracious reading is really difficult – should I choose fiction or non-fiction? If fiction, do I choose those basic childhood reading books that originally kindled my love of independent reading in the first place, or those adult books that for a million different reasons remain most memorable to me now? And if non-fiction, do I choose history books or cookery books or self-help books, or all those extra-curricular academic text-books I read of my own volition while completing my degree? To be honest I think every book I’ve ever read has influenced me in some way or another, even if only to remind me never to read that particular author (or subject-matter) again! πŸ™‚

In your opinion, where is the line between art and not art?

Oooh, great question! I often ponder the ‘Is photography art?’ question – or more to the point for me, ‘When is photography art?’ I suppose for me it’s when you deliberately work to create an artistic effect with your image instead of focus on making no more than a faithful visual representation…

What is something that really annoys you, but doesn’t bother most people?

The older I get, the more of a grumpy old woman I become – but I don’t suppose my grumps and gripes are that much different from anyone else’s at my age. But I honestly don’t understand why American dates are written partially backwards – I mean, either have year, month, day as a format or day, month, year – but month, day, year simply makes no sense to me at all  πŸ™‚

  1. Some pretty cool effects. A few weeks ago I did the zoom trick with people line dancing under purple lights. I put up a post about the Inter-dimensional Dancing…. I think it is possible for an unaltered photo to be art, but it is usually the sub-context of the photo. Is a great photograph “high art” or “decorative art”? Not for me to decide πŸ™‚

  2. What fascinating photography and additions…yes that was art… a slide show of artistic merit (IMHO). Trent is an interesting fellow who likes to try different effects in his own art, I think perhaps you’ll like him. Thanks so much for sharing your world this week! πŸ˜€
