Parco Agricolo Sud Milano. Fog

Maybe it is only a SAD effect, but Autumn is certainly the bloggers' preferred season for embroidering upon what is to be considered art or not. Just to put my two cents (European of course) in let me cite a passage from Polidoro da Caravaggio where he describes a discussion between Agostino Carracci, one of founders of the famous Bolognese school of painting, and a group of Art connoisseur of the time. They were speaking about the recently discovered statue group of the Laocoonte, but Agostino was taking himself apart, asked why he said, designing the group with great precision, that "Painters must express themselves with their hands". Now if you agree with me Photography is made with tools that are a modern extension of our hands: the camera and the computer.
