August’s Assignment Gallery – Fire in the Belly
- My maxims are: make no more boring art, impact/startling, different & better
- Favorite style: macro
- Favorite subject/theme: nature/animal behavior
- Passionate about: (1) plants [e.g. conifers & oaks (the only ones I've paid serious attention to so far; but, I'm fascinated by plants in general)], (2) food (nothing startling so far), (3) mushrooms/fungi/lichens (modest success; long way to go) & (4) abstracts (again, nothing to brag about).
- Evidently, I do enjoy a challenge; but, I’m not competitive in the usual sense: I much prefer ‘Win-Win’ to “Win-Lose’.
Furthermore, I love irony; but, found it doesn’t do any better in photography than sarcasm in polite company. Oh, one more thing: I’m looking forward to doing some triptychs; and–as I mentioned last month, Travel Photography.” - Barry Grivett
“This assignment made me do a lot of thinking and realize that taking pictures is what is driving me and putting the fire in my belly.” – Genevieve Fix
“Well, you asked for Fire in the Belly, and this one is about as close as you come to being literally that, without a trip to the E.R. The second is probably more the kind of interpretive image you had in mind, in this case, of illumination awakening in the mind.” – Bob Scott
If keeping belly your warm isn’t your thing, how about showing us the world you live in instead? Consider participating in next month’s assignment!
