A Photographer is to art as a Miller is to a wedding cake! The Photographer and the Miller both produce a raw material that can be used in producing something that is incredibly more complex and (hopefully) more satisfying than the original material alone.
I have evolved over the last fifty some years or so from being a ‘picture taker’ to more of a ‘photo artist’. What comes out of Jones Artworks is mostly ‘what is’, but occasionally I get an image that gives me the opportunity to bring life to ‘what my imagination sees’. I will probably spend the rest of my life using my camera’s lens for harvesting images to use later for ‘wedding cakes’ and many other photos that will probably turn out to be considerably less complex than a ‘wedding cake’.
I hope that my efforts are able to bring some joy to people’s lives.
