I once read somewhere that some famous photographers tend to avoid shooting flowers. Their argument is that flowers are beautiful by themselves, it does not take much talent to create a beautiful flower photograph.
I do not agree.
While it is somewhat true, I believe that a flower shot by a talented and creative photographer can be a piece of art. You cannot create art without talent.
Speaking of flowers and photographs, I will be participating in a joint photography exhibition this Friday (inshallah). The theme is flowers (of course.. why else would I have mentioned flowers?). I submitted 6 photographs and only two will be chosen and printed on canvas. (this photo is not one of them, by the way). I really liked the idea, since I won't have to deal with any of the printing and organizing, such headache it gave me last time!
The exhibition will be held at an art gallery in the Zamalek district.
So if you find yourself free on Friday night at 7pm, stop by! It is on 26A Baghat Ali Street, Zamalek, the place is called Art House. And please, do me a favor, if you do come, don't just stand there watching, introduce yourself! Trust me, I won't bite.
In case you were wondering what happened to me this past month, and why I suddenly disappeared from blogger world, I will tell you that Asya happened. She's my three months old baby sister. Only three months and she's already a spoilt brat! It has been a while since we had a baby in this house, so we're making a big deal out of it.
