When it comes to opinions, they’re like um, brains, yep, brains, we all have one. 😉
As different as we all are, so are our perspectives.
I love to have different people look at the same subject, photo (in my case), and give their opinion.
It still never ceases to amaze me how one person can look at a photo and say “Meh, it does nothing for me,” and the next person can come along and that same photo is their favorite. It reminds me how ultimately diverse we all are.
Meet Pricilla, my cousin breeds, raises, trains and sells horses. I love going there to visit. This is the newest addition. She has an older brother out there somewhere named Elvis.
Which do you prefer? Why?
Now from these, which is your favorite, why?
Notice how color vs. Black and white can completely change the mood of the same photo? I think its because as much as I favor color, it can be distracting to the emotion of a picture. Black and white photos lay bare the soul of the moment. This is especially true in photos of human interaction, but can even be viable in photos of non humans as shown above.
Art, whether a painting, a photograph, a drawing, or even sculpture will only stand out to an audience if it stirs an emotion, a memory, a feeling. That is one reason taste can vary so widely, it varies as do our life experiences and our perspectives.
Maybe this also helps explain why theres so much chaos during election time. Different life experiences, different perspectives. It would be nice if we could all learn to appreciate each others differences instead of judge each other on them.
Now completely off the subject, I also just want to let my loyal readers know that I’m tired of pizza and take out. I’ll hopefully have some time to cook some things up here soon! I’ve got many recipes to still try and share, stay tuned.
