In early 2018 I joined what our local council
called the Arts Trail.
I exhibited some of my photos
in a country hall with others.
From memory, I was the only exhibitor showing
photographic art at the venue.
The majority of exhibitors were
showing their paintings or handcrafts.
I soon learned that many visitors were
not impressed with photographic art.
Instead, preferring to spend their hard-earned on
paintings that I would not dream of owning.
Sadly, the only real interest I had was a male
who exclaimed three times
‘That’s a photograph‘
when viewing this image.
Since then I have been told that
there is no skill involved in photography.
I guess freedom of speech does entitle
everyone to their own opinion.
I hope this is a fresia
