    You work with a camera the way every artist uses their particular medium! Someone once complimented my cooking that way & instead of arguing that it wasn't that at all (which I was on the verge of doing) I shut up and accepted the compliment!

      There are some photographs that I've taken that I am proud of but that is normally for reasons other than compositional ones e.g. risks involved or having to work to get through red tape.

      Artistically, I think that if ever I see them as anything special I'll start to second guess myself and that wouldn't be good.

      I'm happy just to throw stuff out there.

        I wish I could take better photos- but I'm glad that I can cook well. I've thought about that comment from a dinner I threw 10 years ago and I decided that he had a good point.

        My husband plays the piano beautifully. I can't even sing but I love listening. I have always loved things presented artistically whether it's writing, painting, poems, photos, opera and yes, sometimes cooking.

        It's sensory appreciation for balance and color , and light! It brings life with it.
