I usually read the messages in the group and some I save to "Filing Cabinet".
The discussion that Doris offers I printed and will keep.
It speaks to the very essence of why I am involved with Photography in
general and Olympus and the Zuiko optics in particular. Each person's
vision and interpretation is subjective. One has only to look at the famous
French impressionists and read the history of that genre to understand that
objectivity cannot be readily applied to art.
I love the diversity of images that one can produce in photography. It can
be a cathartic release or a way to pay the bills. It doesn't matter. Just
do it! See the scene with your own eyes and let your own interpretation be
the arbitor of what you shoot. You can do it to suit others (if you are
shooting for hire ) or you can do it to suit yourself. Few produce fine
photos adhering to the former.
My two cents worth.
