When I was away at college, I had a friend who was one heck of a photographer. That guy saw a photo in almost everything his eyes saw. Magically, he could show something in his pictures that when you looked at the same item, had a newer splendid appeal when he photographed it. I always envied his ability to do this. I have tried through the years after buying a good camera and it was never quite as good as his.
I think the one thing I did learn from him was that a photograph was even more special for the arts. When you can take something that everyone else sees and make it a piece of art, that is genius. I want to share some great ones that I have found that to me, speaks through the artist's eyes and puts them to be seen and appreciated.
