  1. 1.
  2. 2. Any creation inscribes itself in the world we live in.<br />Even if you erase it .. It may survive for long....<br />if inscribed in people’s minds. As the next picture,<br /> that conveys a vison of a peaceful nature.<br />

  4. 4. Or an extremely photoshop altered nature photo.....<br />

  6. 6. In a sense, they are the<br /> abstract painting that you will see next....<br />Even an abstract painting can tell something<br /> about the human who did can<br /> carry aesthetic or emotional content, even if<br /> devoid of specific meaning.<br />

  8. 8. The next one is painting of the late 19th century,<br /> by Edouard Doigneau, in the Romantic style. <br />Here arabs are depicted as adventurous and free<br />to roam the desert, more close to nature than the average westerner.<br /> What we have here is a vision of a foreign land as a escape from a somewhat limited existence. This would of course change in our times so that today it could convey a sense of a terrorist threat...<br />

  10. 10. Photography also has the same power to induce an emotional mood than paintings... In the next picture an eerie, melancholic mood is evoked, with very simple image elements.<br />
