Day 56—Yes, But Is It Art?

I’ve posted some goofy things on this blog but I have to say, this one takes the prize for the goofiest. Today’s challenge topic is “art,” a followup to yesterday’s “deliberate blur abstract” challenge. When she read the topic, my friend and fellow photo-blogger, Melinda, e-mailed me that I might have to drive to Redding for today’s challenge because Art, my brother, lives there. At first I laughed but the more I thought about it, the more I thought it was a brilliant idea to feature “Art” in my “art” photo today. I printed out a photo I took of him, cut out his head and stuck it inside the eggshell. I don’t think anyone would mistake this photo for “art” but I can most assuredly say, “Yes, it IS Art!”

  1. […] I love shoes. I love to buy shoes. My shoe collection, while not yet rivaling that of Imelda Marcos, is larger than it’s ever been. But, I haven’t always been able to find shoes. When I was growing up, my shoe wardrobe consisted of white Spalding Oxfords for school, Navy Keds for play, and black flats for church (white from Easter until Labor Day), because I have big feet and shoes in my size were scarce. I now wear a size 11 (I take after my Dad who wore a size 14). When I turned ten, my foot also grew to a size ten and the availability of shoes for me was limited to Spaldings and Keds. My older brother declared that I would soon have to start wearing shoe boxes because there certainly wouldn’t be any shoes for me at that size. You can imagine my mother’s horror when my foot continued to grow to size 11 by Junior High School and not only was my foot long, it was narrow. I wore a 5A width shoe, so narrow that it was impossible for me to find any shoes that came close to fitting my feet. By now, my oh so sensitive and empathetic brother declared my feet to be like skis. Thinking back on those remarks, I’m glad I stuck him in an eggshell (Click here to see the post ‘Yes, But Is It Art’). […]
