Black and White Photos

[referring to a childlike drawing of a cow]
Katherine Watson: 25 years ago, someone thought this was brilliant.
Betty Warren: Who?
Katherine Watson: My mother. I painted it for her birthday. Next slide. This is my mom. Is it art?
Susan Delacorte: It’s a snapshot.
Katherine Watson: If I told you Ansel Adams had taken it, would that make a difference?
Betty Warren: Art isn’t art until someone says it is.
Katherine Watson: It’s art!
Betty Warren: The right people.
Betty Warren: And who are they?

I thought this was a great conversation!!!  It made me believe that anything is art, as long as you think its art.

I am pretty sure that someone could take a picture of a band-aid, make it black and white, and I would say, “oooooh, ART!!!”  I feel that way about most black and white photos.  Black or white adds classiness to any space, and the beauty of no color is there is no matching necessary.

So take some pictures, make them black and white, and frame them.  It adds a little something personal to any space!

    I found your blog today and have been reading through the posts (love them by the way). But I saw this one and had to ask where you got that sign about children? I love it and think it would be awesome in my daughter’s room!
