|The value of life lies not in the length of days, but in the use we make of them; a man may live long, yet live very little.|
- Michel de Montaigne
MundaneI fell in love too easily:Mundane by BethyLuv215
I fell for the stars.
I fell for the sky.
I fell for brown eyes.
I want the boring things:
To wear pajamas all day.
To build a pillow fort.
To wake up in someone's arms.
I like the mundane:
The feel of rain.
The taste of honey.
The smell of lilies.
I fell for all the right things.
Nothing is truly boring.
And "mundane" is just another word
for "under appreciated".
ConformistYou conformConformist by Elendurwen
To the life of others
In dull addiction
To happiness for sale
So easily thrown away
So carelessly silenced
Nice and safe
With your eyes shut hard
Your hands are stretched
In search for a savior
You nod and you agree
With intellectual rape
With systematic slaughter
To the approved thinking
You smile so readily
Programmed to align
You give yourself to masses
Betrayed by its suicide

Against those who Call Religious Art Idolatry and Blasphemy
Often times Catholics are called pagans and idol worshipers for depicting Christ, expressing him in religious art, and expressing him in statues. This is true in depicting the saints, angels, and the like.
I find these arguments very strange. The most commonly cited “proof” is from Ex 20:4 and similar passages: “Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth” (KJV).
This is certainly true, especially when considering that the Israelites fashioned for themselves a golden calf and, in various ages, many other idols of Cannanite, Babylonian, and Assyrian gods. In these times God was without image. From Genesis and throughout the Old Testament God is not described as having proportions or form but rather as expansive, immense, and beyond comparison. Images, or more specifica
|This group came to be from our desire ( Codruta's and mine) to make a place of our own on DA. A place to be ourselves and to be togeter with other people that see the world in a similar way. We like many things here on DA and we dislike other things as well. |
Art means not only photography. We don't care about the quality of the photo AS LONG as it has feeling. For ourselves didn't have good cameras and struggled a lot to be taken seriously by others.
Art is life and life is art, if you know how to live it. And joy, happiness, are present in our life as well as grief, desolation and mourning. This group is about us and others that feel the same, about our feelings, and the way we manage (or sometimes not) to turn what we feel in art.
I am sorry, but you are not kept here against your will. If you think you don't feel the same, you are free to leave. But not ask of us to give up what we are and what we like.
Some of you may find this useful :
Monochrome is a term generally used to describe painting, drawing, design, or photograph in one color or shades of one color. Monochromatic light is light of a single wavelength, though in practice it can refer to light of a narrow wavelength range. A monochromatic object or image is one whose range of colors consists of shades of a single color or hue; monochrome images in neutral colors are also known as grayscale or black-and-white.
For an image, the term monochrome is usually taken to mean the same as black-and-white or, more likely, grayscale, but may also be used to refer to other combinations containing only tones of a single color, such as green-and-white or green-and-black. It may also refer to sepia displaying tones from light tan to dark brown or cyanotype (“blueprint”) images, and early photographic methods such as Ambrotype, Tintype and Daguerreotype, each of which may be used to produce a monochromatic image.
Philosophy is the study of general and fundamental problems concerning matters such as existence, knowledge, values, reason, mind, and language. It is distinguished from other ways of addressing fundamental questions (such as mysticism, myth, or the arts) by its critical, generally systematic approach...
The shorter version of all that's writen above:
monochrome pictures only
works need to have a connection with some philosophical current (eg. realism, empiricism, monism)
works need to express/transmit/have a meaning
