Tulips (Five Photographs) and a bit about Art

I suppose with some application of time and effort I might have been more of a graphic artist, as opposed to a photographer. I was certainly exposed to the best museums in the world and a large variety of art of all types (in a very artistic family). However, drawing and painting involved skills I could not seem to master. Photography on the other hand came naturally. I know there are those who do not consider photography per se as art. I will not argue, I know where I stand. Photography can have many names and the results can fall into many categories. While I take a lot of nature photography, I would never consider myself an expert on nature. When it comes to photography I know a good challenge when I see one, and I know what pleases my eye. However, I do object to the fact that most definitions of art specifically limit creative activity in the definition to drawing, painting and sculpture. It may take some time for the Oxford English Dictionary to expand its examples, and I suspect “Twitter” will be a formal verb before that happens.
