i think its just supposed to be a cool photograph! enough with the philosophical interpretation! ;)
I think the photograph itself is a philosophical interpretation:
The perfect man, he doesn't really exist and he's still not all that impressive.
actually i like that :)
as an art history major with a photography exam tomorrow, i should be used to this! hehe
hehe, nice. ;) Art History. I was going to take that as a class and never got around to it. I suppose I can do it sometime. What's your exam on? What's your favorite era?
it's an awesome class, but for people who are less-than-passionate about the subject matter it can be a huge struggle. I feel pretty bad for the business majors in my italian renaissance class who are totally lost!
my exam is history and theory of photography. as it stands, the test talks about the time between the invention until the beginning of the 18th century. no colour yet ;)
Musing about harry potter and debating if that's the groom or not are hardly philosophical interpretations.
Oh,don't give up thaaaat easy.
What would you consider a philosophical conversation about this photograph? Or isn't one possible, because it's art? *raises a brow*
discussing the meaning...
So what if someone wants to call these discussions philosophical or not?
Yea, so what, especially if they want to call them not philosophical.
We all have our own philosophies about how to deal with people, how to eat food, how to look at art.
I'm not contesting that. I tend to champion relativistic approaches to life.
For the love of Christ, can you not just once just look at a picture, read a story, absorb a statistic, or laugh at a joke without acting like an android about everything with absolutely no sense of humor whatsoever? Without trying to say how someone's comment seems to you to be "hardly" worth being posted.
I said that they weren't philosophical. I made no judgments regarding their worth in this discussion. Additionally, the post I was responding to was negatively reacting to the posts of several others, asking their topics of discussion to cease.
If you don't agree with what someone has to say, don't post it at all. Just don't post.
Your post is disagreeing with what I had to say. Disagreement is what makes discussion interesting. If we all agreed there wouldn't be anything to discuss.
Because negativity, it spreads like a cancer. And CANCER KILLS!
I really must object to this. It's sensationalistic. It's overextending an analogy. It's also a classic case of the pot calling the kettle black. Your post is far more negative than anything I could conceive.
*Turns on the fan* Oooh. It's getting warm in here...
*hugs you!* Precisely. :)
