Photographing Public Art Challenge (PPAC)

‘Public art encompasses any form of art you see in a public place, large or small, statues, murals, graffiti, gardens, parks, etc. The art should be visible from streets, sidewalks, or outdoor public places. Let your imagination and photographic eye show us diverse samples all over the world’. PPAC


A parable: “A man was examining the construction of a cathedral.

He asked a stonemason what he was doing chipping the stones, and the mason replied, “I am making stones.”

He asked a stone carver what he was doing. “I am carving a gargoyle.” And so it went, each person said in detail what they were doing.

Finally, he came to an old woman who was sweeping the ground. She said. “I am helping build a cathedral.”

…Most of the time each person is immersed in the details of one special part of the whole and does not think of how what they are doing relates to the larger picture” Richard Hamming

Thank you for your visit.

Take care, my friend.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

  1. I love that quote. Perfect, “I am helping to build a cathedral.” We should all keep our focus on the bigger picture while still paying attention to details. I must be blind, but I can’t tell what the carving is. It looks like a hair style I’d like but don’t have enough hair. 🙂

    1. Thank you Marsha.
      The story is meaningful.Is it no so?
      You are right.
      This is hairstyle of the statue photographed from back side
      The trend is we always photograph the front or side of the statue and never look at the back of the head.
      In this bust I found the hairstyle interesting.
