2012.09.10 The reality of the force


The artistic image is not intended to represent the thing itself,
but, rather,
the reality of the force the thing contains.
~ James Baldwin

Sometimes the photograph is more forceful and vibrant than the reality of the thing itself.
Other times, the photo is but a pale shadow of the reality.
Each of us decides which is which.
~ Me
