sunny side up
I was going to enter this photo in the final of Survivor: Flickr Island. But it's not a photo. Well, it's four photos, if you count the dirt layer.
Shots like this amaze and bother me. I used no special photography skill here except that I can take a crisp photo of flames, a stove, and a sunflower.
The real art was the thought, the concept. And the craft was the execution of it. It was a quick job, too--erasing the background of a flame and a flower, adding a drop shadow, clicking a setting on the layers.
So this isn't my entry, in spite of the fact that it's fucking cool! I'm proud of it as art, but I don't consider it photography. It's my own problem, perhaps. But I think others share the frustration in trying to determine what it is.
