Repetition is RepetitiousRepetition is great for practice.
Repetition is great for learning.
Repetition teaches patience.
Repetition teaches devotion.
Repetition is comfortable.
But repetition is repetitious.
Don't people get tired of doing roughly the same things over and over again?
Don't people get tired of seeing roughly the same things over and over again?
Tired of repeating the same techniques.
Tired of repeating the same concepts.

Need to innovate.
Art is not my job.
Art is my mental exercise.
And I am mentally underfit.
So it's time to get back into shape.
What Your Art Is Telling About YourselfThese thoughts were preserved on my mind for many months now.What Your Art Is Telling About Yourself2 months ago in Personal More Like This
Since I started analysis of artworks, I always had a strong focus on the character behind the works.
But still it is hard to write about this, because I cannot give any concrete example for what I mean as no single artwork is neutral enough to talk about it, without giving ideas about the person who created it. Around us there are thousands of profiles, each one telling a different, unique story. Now I am not going to spend any word about the art anymore, just the artists I met so far.
I saw people filled with inner darkness, expressing their suffering through black and white, abstract works. All they try is making people see their darkness, sharing their inner worlds in a way that we might understand them. I have something to say to these: It is good to express emotions, it is great to share feelings with others and to find comfort doing this. But there is a high price to be paid. By creating such a reality, we focus

I have a lot of poetry about murder to upload, but sometimes I'm just too lazy to type it out [hehe, it was kind of really funny when I read my Introduction to Murder poem aloud during class ]. The same is with old photos that I never bothered to upload because it takes me so long to look through all my files and find them. I never said I wasn't lazy. I am extremely lazy. Everyone I know (except for those ignorant classmates of mine who still think I'm just another smart, productive person) knows that I'm lazy. I don't really know what my point is here. I'm lazy >.

1. Tell us about yourself...
Well, I don't really like talking about myself. I'm Cathie, I live in the North of France. I am studying to become a nurse. I like simple things, moments of happiness that prove that life is worth living, meet new people, things look romantic and vintage, love stories. Oh, and I've a very, very bad English, sorry guys!
2. Who or what inspired you to start photography?
My father. Hm, okay I admit it's not original as a response, but it is so true. He was photographer when he was younger and he has lot of old argentic cameras and large strange machines to develop photos in a darkroom ... I always thought it was too cool and fun, and that's how my interest to the photo started .
3. Who are your favorite artist(s)?
