Exceptional art has a WOW! Factor that can’t be ignored. Whatever the message, it reaches out and grabs you. First, it captures the eye, and then the mind: visually and symbolically.
Getting this photo took some perseverance. With all the selfie-shooters and the “I was there” poseurs (the most popular shot was someone’s goofy head sticking out an eye socket), I had to patiently wait my turn.
Our blogging buddy Carol at Which Way Now 101 invited us to participate in a B&W photo challenge. We don’t use many black and white shots in our blog posts, so it sounded like an interesting challenge.
