What’s the point?
Should we feel compassion for such people who obviously have some sort of photographic dyslexia or just an incurable addiction to pictures of any sort, no matter how puerile, as long as they are in colour? Are they to be pitied or shunned completely, here we have to be careful we wouldn’t want to infringe their human rights!
Whenever I see such a remark or comment that dismisses out of hand anyone’s picture I am always reminded of a scene from the movie ‘Lust for Life’, Hollywood’s take on the life of Vincent van Gogh.
Van Gogh (Kirk Douglas) is in an argument with Paul Gaugin (Anthony Quinn) about Van Gogh’s painting style when Gaugin remarks “Your trouble is you paint too quick”.
Van Gogh replies, “Your trouble is you look too quick”.
So don’t ‘look too quick’ when viewing pictures, you may miss something.
