THE CURRENT CHALLENGE
Fri Sep 28, 2012
This week's challenge:
The Magic of the Cities.
Zen promotes the rediscovery of the obvious, which is so often lost in its familiarity and simplicity. It sees the miraculous in the common and magic in our everyday surroundings. When we are not rushed, and our minds are unclouded by conceptualizations, a veil will sometimes drop, introducing the viewer to a world unseen since childhood. ~John Greer
You don't take a photograph, you make it. ~Ansel Adams
The Earth Has Music For Those Who Listen.

Civilization is what makes you sick.
There is always a heavy demand for fresh mediocrity.
In every generation the least cultivated taste has the largest appetite.
The history of modern art is also the history of the progressive loss of art's audience.
Art has increasingly become the concern of the artist and the bafflement of the public.
Art requires philosophy, just as philosophy requires art.
Otherwise, what would become of beauty?
