>>>Weekly "IS IT ART?" thread. Post your Artistic Photos. 11/10/13<<<
Nov 10, 2013

There were some great things being posted last week, so - Let's try it again!

I'm looking forward to seeing your "Artistic" photos - no need for realism! Things that have caught your eye, or things you have created.

Please post your "Artistic" shots - any camera, any time, even old film shots.

Please reply to this first post and change the subject line at the top to reflect YOUR picture, so replies will indicate what picture is being commented on.

Please let people post photos for a day or so before posting comments so the photos take precedence.

I'm not entirely sure this even qualifies:

These are definitely artistic creations.
In reply to Erik Ohlson, Nov 10, 2013

My woodworking instructor, Wally Drexler, held an open house to show off some of his creations today. I think they are extremely artistic. Here's a very small sample of some of his stuff.

How do they do it?

Even the finest lacemakers would have a hard time doing this, yet it is done by the millions every day .

Some fungus
In reply to Erik Ohlson, Nov 11, 2013

Hi.

Last Sunday, searching for mushrooms in the forest, I noticed this fungus. It was reasonably big, perhaps some 20 centimeters across. Not exactly what I was searching for, but I had to take a picture of it

regards

Walked up to my young oak tree and found an interesting pattern.  Art or junk?
