The Thing That Art Can Do

I think I have a flair for photography somewhat. I know I enjoy being the focus of the camera, but recently, I figured out that I also like to be behind it. There is this joy that comes from seeing the killing smiles on the faces of those who have been shot. Pun intended.

I love creative expressions. I am very much interested in expressing and exploring the basic human emotions such as joy, sadness, ecstasy and so on through art. I once shared how to express emotions through dance here. And many times, I've shared how I do same through writing as well as through fashion. Everything is art.

You may be asking, "what is art?"

This question pops up often, and comes with many answers. Many argue that art cannot be defined. Some say, the meaning of art is explored in a branch of philosophy known as aesthetics. At least, that’s what Wikipedia claims.

And you know what I say? Art is an expression of oneself (myself).

Art is an evolving and personal expression, open to new interpretation, too fluid to be pinned down. 

This is a definition that I grew to own when I stopped expressing 'Heart Rays' as simply an audio thingy.

I'm such an art

I must say, building a network of people who have interests in different creative expressions can lead to fresh inspiration. My love for photography has been birthed, perhaps, discovered. And I really want to play with it throughout this year.

One important aspect of my creative process is patience. Often, I find a good flow and can’t stop working on a particular expression until I am happy (and exhausted). So. . .right now, I'm curious!

Photography captures light. And I will be giving you some. Stay with me. :)

I hope you get my point. Art comes from a desire to express ourselves, to verbalize our experiences, thoughts, ideas and what fascinates us about life. Open up yourself to find your expression and experience it.
Art is really super fun and exciting!

Photography is sure getting my adrenaline pumping like crazy!!! It’s a trip. Thanks for coming over. Pun not intended.

OK. I don’t need to tell you any of the things that art can do because you already know. But what I will ask you is:

where is art in your life right now?

Stay inspired.
Stay positive.
Stay beautiful.
