I suspect that might be true for all of photography, but for me it bothers me more when I see cluttered street images of rather mundane people doing mundane thinks or photos of very ordinary things (often decaying things) with ho hum lighting and terrible composition. While there are many fine images with fine lighting and great composition there are just as many that are just are plain, in my opinion, and that do not take us to another level. This thing called photography which is about capturing light around us in the city, in my opinion, should always lift us up and excite us about life.
Well, that image was selected to be in a Juried Art show through CoPA (Coalition of Photographic Artists) here in Milwaukee at the Art Bar. The Exhibit is titled Reflections - A Place Called Milwaukee. The Exhibits extends from July 31 through September 10 this year at Art Bar Riverwest, 722 E. Burleigh, Milwaukee, Wisconsin. There is a reception from 7 pm to midnight on July 31, 2015
The next image was also accepted for the exhibit. It is a billboard I found on Farwell and Ogden Avenue in Milwaukee that lets you ponder a little about life, direction, purpose and a host of other things.
