but what’s the point of this photograph?
For me there is the point that I went there for a picnic some years ago but without that personal factor the photograph has limited impact.
I fiddle around with it and produce the oil painting effect below which I quite like but which, like its parent photograph, has limited impact.
Similarly with lots of photographs/paintings I fail to see the point – like an unfunny joke.
What then is the factor that makes buyers bid millions against each other to possess a Monet or a Corot?
