“Algebra is the offer made by the devil to the mathematician. The devil says: `I will give you this powerful machine, it will answer any question you like. All you need to do is give me your soul: give up geometry and you will have this marvellous machine.'”
“Well, art is art, isn’t it? Still, on the other hand, water is water! And east is east and west is west and if you take cranberries and stew them like applesauce they taste much more like prunes than rhubarb does. Now, uh… Now you tell me what you know.”
So let me tell you what I know. I long ago gave up worrying about what other people thought about my pictures. I take pictures to please myself and I find that feeling very liberating. I still take great pleasure from hearing that someone else likes one of my pictures but I no longer need that feedback to feel happy with a picture, it is enough for me that I like it. So in closing, let me post a picture of mine that nobody I know actually likes but tickles me greatly. For me it is all about the geometry in the image and geometry reminds me of my father. He always set a great example for anyone creative (be prepared to give anything a try and if it works don’t pay too much mind to what anyone else thinks).
