Who says a blog can’t be art?
Warning this is a rant
So today I was banned from a Flickr group, which is no big deal for me, but when I went to the group to see what rule I might have broken I saw that it said “No blogs, art pieces only.” This got me thinking, who says that blog pictures aren’t art? I mean I know there’s some that are very obviously advertising, but there are some blog pictures that are very much art. I know for me, I put a lot of time into getting the picture I want perfect. That’s why sometimes it takes a few days for me to do a post, I want to have everything the way I picture it in my head. Then I go and take the pictures, which on a good day takes a couple of hours because of lag, on a bad day it can take a few days to get one that isn’t blurry. Then after that I go into photoshop and I edit my pictures to the way I want. Sometimes I think I want it then decide it sucks, scrap it and start again in photoshop. To me my pictures are art. So because I have a blog and put a blog link in my picture that makes it not an art piece? I mean there are some blogs that I follow that I’m in awe of when it comes to their pictures. Does that mean that those pictures aren’t art because they’re a blog?
It kind of made me think “heh, elitist much?” and a little miffed at the attitude. Like seriously, it’s flickr, and art is objective, no need to be rude about it. Anyway, rant over. I just wanted to get that off my chest hahaha
Hope you’re all having a good weekend! New blog post coming soon, am currently setting up the scene I want, just the way I want it so I can show it off to you guys!
