What is art?

Ragtag Daily Prompt: Art

I have set the question so perhaps I should find a bit of art for you to be able to make up your mind. Let’s start with a bit of a song to get you in an arty mood. Is this art as well?

One of my favourites types of art – street art

Some “modern” art – neon lights

Inside of a walk in box

Using glass to make a statement

Famous woks that appeal. This is a Salvador Dali

More street art, this time sculptures

Making use of recycled objects

Art in nature – Sand Crabs “art”

The artistry of a Satin Bowerbird

My besties art

Fun art we create when out and about hoping someone smiles as the walk by

Photographic art

Trying to make a bit of money from art is hard

Do you have an answer? I don’t. I find art is what you like and enjoy, something that makes your heart sing, your mind inquisitive and brings joy to others.

Fun in the tree

Late one afternoon a while ago a screeching could be heard, the unmistakable sound of Yellow-tailed Black Cockatoos. Soon the Cockatoos were circling around and they then headed off to some distant trees.

I was watching where they were and in particular the Black Cockatoo closest who was doing a bit of moving around on the branch he was sitting on. It was very low light and the telephoto function on my Canon camera was at full stretch. The quality of the photos isn’t the best but I thought I should share a bit of our native birds sense of fun. You have already seen what the King Parrots do around my place having fun.

Enjoy the next sequence of photos. Just two settled on this side of the tree

Suddenly this Yellow-tailed Black Cockatoo leant forward.

Then it was head down a bit further, wings spread a bit for balance and the tail feathers flared.

A little bit further, head well tucked and body all on the other side of the branch.

Then it was right over, wings open, tail upright and his head where his tail was seconds ago.

Back upright, wings and tail ready for the final balance on the branch.

Steady and settling back down.

and carry on as though nothing happened

When I was a kid…..

…..my mum used to send me to the corner shop down the end of our street with a ten-bob note. I’d bring back half a dozen eggs, 2 pints of milk, a loaf of unsliced bread, a 5lb sack of potatoes and as a treat, a small paper bag with lollies for me.

You can’t get all of that for ten bob now-a-days…….

Too many cameras.
