I recently got a comment about a photo on my website, wherein the commenter said that at first the photo didn't really do much for him and he was all ready to move along, when he got a phone call which kept him occupied for a while and he ended up studying the photo more while he was on the phone and he came to really appreciate it, in fact told me it was probably his favorite of my photos. That got me thinking about how photos make their impact, how sometimes they immediate hit you , and other times they need longer to wind their way into your subconscious or something. It is one of the beautys of art, how if given more time they can come to have a greater affect on us. Do we always give an artwork the time it might need? I am sure we don't. How can we tell when something actually is "pass-by-able" or when we should study it more? These are some of the thoughts the recent comment inspired me in. Discuss!
