DD Favorite Photograph Album
« on: December 08, 2013, 04:26:44 AM »
Good Sunday morning Diners.

After coming upon some powerful, "Photo Says it All Works This Morning" I have decided to start a new topic devoted to photos that Diners find to be impressive and worthy of recognition by all our membership and ever increasing  outside visitors.

The idea behind this thread is to post particularly powerful photos that say it all, by themselves, with a minimum of text. Usually a mere sentence or two of explanation of it's origin and what it is portraying. Not a place for news articles with photos, we have those threads in place already.

Hopefully it will develop into another informative place for our members and visitors to frequent and post in.       GO

Utterly fantastic imagery. How incredible the art and influence some can create with a camera. Truly a gift from the Creator.

Thanks RE, Your initial contribution was fantastic and exactly what I had in mind and hoped for starting this thread.  :emthup: :emthup: :emthup:

What I like most about it RE is it's constant value. You can go back over and over again and peruse while conjuring up new meaning and relevance on this incredibly important field of art.  It is that SPECIAL kind of photo that will hopefully find it's way into the Diner Album.

Great idea for a thread Ox.  I'll think on it some and see if I can come up with a photo that fits the bill for this thread.

Mind boggling!  How can that horror ever be conveyed or explained with words? Not very likely.

Have no doubt that you will Lucid and thanks for your interest. GM will hopefully contribute as well, she seems to possess that photographic artist gene.  :icon_sunny:

I dont think any two people see the same thing, and what of the unfortunate unphotogenic?
