    Hi Ron,
    I love the Cartier Bresson quote; also your description of your self portrait. Forgive me if I’m being dense, but did you mean to include a photo, or is the gist that your description is your sketchbook?

    Hi Ron!
    Sometimes art is prisoner of other interests like fashion, economics… Of course, I also believe that other times is just a question of being at the right place at the right moment!
    So…Being considered an artist can be a question of luck or of snobbery…What can we do? To persist in our passion with the whole heart!

    Ron, thanks for including the quote. I’d not read it before. And I like your self-portrait. As for what’s “art” or “good” photography, you have only to look at some of what’s out there to realize that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. 🙂 We went to a local art walk last weekend and there was much there I wouldn’t take if it were given to me. But others like and buy it. It’s the same with modern art, much of which I don’t get, don’t care for and don’t see as art. Be true to yourself. From what I can see, you have a photographer’s eye and I know from what you just said that you have the heart to go with it.
