I’ve returned to this pic i took at the local art gallery, currently displaying some pieces from the Pilkington factory, once of Salford, now St. Helens.
Of course , every item has its price tag. There is a replacement value for Insurance purposes….initial cost of production….blah blah.
The artist will want their recognition of course, the irony ? Their work’s rises upon death – thanks to some VERY Shrewd investors.
But the cost to replace the artwork – is priceless – for it would take a great deal of time, skill and blood sweat and tears to replace the artwork behind the glass panel. And once the artisan has passed, you could copy his/her work…but it would never match the original….it would be a pale imitation
drop it….and it might get its value back….buried and recovered decades later….
So, with that in mind – here’s a pic of a local northern landmark from a local artist (you might know him, you’re reading his stuff!!!) – lets call it £10 for a print
Today at BASICs photography session, we’ve had a bit of a Musical theme, using objects we’ve used before together with some musical notation.
Sheets of Music were used by the group to create some wonderful imagery. everything from rings and chains to coloured backgrounds.
Some shots required close up photography or zoom, whilst others required angles or distance. Once again, I used my Bridge camera to create the shots , and we used overhead lighting to get the best of the effects. I’m happy with the shots I took in the session
