Tampering with golden means

  1. Am in food gear at the moment so for me the best was the fish (looked like sardines) frying and that healthy apple so akin to Pink Lady variety which I adore 😀 Happy New year!

      I’m more of a Granny Smith gal, the Pink Lady’s are too sweet for my palate! Happy New Year to you, I shall pop on over to your site to finish reading the food post I started a few days ago, the Krafne one!

  2. If you could turn back time there would, I feel sure be pride of place for you within Warhol’s Factory. As with Inavukic I spotted the Pink Lady Apple of Mystery and the gardener Tennis Ball and D H Lawrence came to mind…I do rather like thought provoking photography with accompanying video for reasons I know not why!

      Warhol’s factory hey, well I’d probably never rock up, they’d have to have a photo mug of me on the table instead. I am glad that you like thought provoking photography with accompanying video for reasons you know not why, it validates my personal life choices in that I have no clue what it is I’m actually doing, yet people somehow think I do. shh don’t tell anyone!

      • My mate Dave the Artist says a thing is not art if you have to explain what it is. At first I thought him wrong then on reflection now see he is on to something in that you don’t have to explain what it is at all…indeed as Chris Eubank a former boxing champion once said when told he ‘must’ take a fight with whomsoever, ‘Look pal the only thing I must do is stay black and one day die’. When subliminally chosen random art validates the reason for the artist to make art has to be the finest thing…or am I talking philosophical rubbish (hope not)!

        I guess it depends on who your making it for, everything I do is for myself and explaining it to myself seems counterproductive. Most times its ‘meaning’ becomes apparent many months later, sometimes instantly. I toy with deleting this blog all the time.

        Maybe knowing the tartist helps a little in regards to understanding the work.

      • Well whatever art is yours is rather special…provokes thought and yes – indeed good to hear you mention it – I also toy with the want to delete all the time. ‘What’s the point’ often consumes me…a vehicle to write upon the inevitable answer I give myself plus I add the likes of a few fine folk to discuss lunacy with!

        Thanks Mike, means a lot. Yeah I mean, what is the point, really. Although I do have a habit of deleting, burning, resting. My phone stopped taking photos for some reason and my initial reaction, oh ill just re-set the thing. Lost everything. Loving life.

        A vehicle. I like this analogy.

      • At least there was method behind your madness re the IPhone…I’m the twit who deleted 200,000 words compiled over a number of years in a fit of childish temper…some, not many even I’d like back!

        Oh no! My computer did that for me not that long ago, with writing. When I thought I was going to write a book. I took it as a no, and thought oh well ok, great. You probably could get someone to recover them you know?

        I realized today that I am no photographer, because I use an apple. I really do love using an apple to document life though.

      • Whether photographer or sublime artist you have that thing called ‘the gift’ – I feel sure you must know that. As to words you also have said gift in that you can take the reader in directions unexpected…you really must write more when you get the chance. As to my deleted words they were on my old laptop that has long since had a hammer put through it (all my banking details were on it so I can’t gift my old computer stuff to charity like I used to). Had the strangest dream last night that a lady who ran a café I used to use two towns ago gave me a plate of glossy sky blue apples…just wish I could remember the rest of the dream.

        Your kind words give me such a boost, thanks Mike. I wish I enjoyed writing more than I do, and have been trying to write more, yet there is little there in terms of words.

        Wow, what a dream. I could see it instantly! I woke up from a dream whereby I shat a coy fish!

        I’ve never heard Frank Zappa’s music before, and though I may not like it. But I don’t mind it. I’m not much of a rock person. The cover art is great.
