A friend of mine once told me that she felt music was the only art form that could ever drastically alter her emotions. For me, good photography does that too. (Actually, most art done very well!)
However indirect and non explicit. Even if it was only a reminder to you about your friend, that is one of the nicest sentiments ever stated in connection with one of my photographs.
Thank you very much! :blushing:
I suppose I feel the same way as you do about peoples creative efforts. It might also partly explain my personal frustration and severe criticism with my own work lately. It seems so puney and insignificant against... let's say the Eiffel tower for example but isn't that just a bunch of stupid bolts and metal? If the Eiffel tower was my creation that's probably how I'd see it.
